Tri Fold Card & Two Challenges

I have made this card for my Niece. Her birthday is not until December so I am well ahead of myself for a change. It's called a tri fold card and although looks complicated is very easy. It must be it has only taken me a couple of evenings to finish. To make the shape: 1. Cut a piece of 12x12 card across and 5.5" down 2. Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10" 3. Cut two lines horizontally 1.5" down from the longest outside edge (top and bottom) 4. Now bend the score lines using mountain and valley folds (1st fold up, 2nd down, 3rd up and 4th down) 5. Decorate however you please. More in depth instructions with pictures are available on the splitcoaststampers website. I am going to enter this design for two challenge blogs. The first being Mos Digital Challenge No. 4. The spec was to create a card using any folds other than a standard A2 fold and to use one of Mo's digital stamps. This isn't difficult as all of Mo's designs are excellent and a dream to colour. The 2nd challenge is week 7 photo inspiration over at the Basic Grey Challenge Blog. See the picture below. Items used: Paper/Card - Bazzill silver card, Basic Grey Bittersweet paper Image - Mo's digital pencil too, "End of Summer" & Crafty Individuals - Butterflies Medium - Copics G94, YG11, YG03, E000, E21, E35, E37, E50, E51, B00, BG10, C1, C3, C5, R11, R20, R27, R32, R37, R59, 0 Ranger Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany Embellishments - Gingham ribbon, Prima flower and paper flower both coloured with copics, Charm and wire flowers from my stash. Thanks for looking at my design. Jenny
