Tilda With Bike ~ Tri Shutter Card

This is my very first attempt at creating a tri shutter card.  It took me a few minutes to get the folding just right.  I think the hardest part was actually when I went to take a photo of the card and couldn't get it to stay closed.  So you can tell by my first photo that it's not actually laying as flat as I would have liked it to be for the photo.

This next photo is of my card laying completely open.  The colors I used are lily pond, rose, light pink and white.   The butterflies are punched out of lily pond and light pink card stock. There is embossing on the squares of white card stock behind the image and behind the pink butterfly.

I colored the image, Tilda With Bike, using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I cut it out in an oval, backed it in rose card stock and then cut around it with scallop scissors. Here is an upclose view of the image....
