Bloomin' marvelous tri-shutter card

Hello there today I am sharing the card we made in the classes this week.  It is a tri-shutter card which I created for mother's day. 

We used a combination of Rose red, pool party and lucky limeade colours.

This sentiment is from the You are Loved stamp set 

The patterned paper was created by stamping the flower, butterfly and leaves from the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set (one of the sets FREE from Sale-a-bration) randomly over some very vanilla card and then cut down and matted and layered onto the pool party.Three separate flowers were stamped and cut out in pool party and placed onto three of the panels.

Four of the panels were embossed using the vintage wallpaper embossing folder

The butterflies were stamped using a baby wipe and re-inkers. This technique gained me a few wows!!

The letters were cut using the timeless type alphabel sizzlits which have now unfortunately retired 

A few of my ladies swapped a couple of the sentiments and made some beautiful birthday cards instead

 This is a view of the card laid flat
