Triple Point Butterfly Card

Hello, everyone!  I am planning to make more butterfly cards this year so I'm relying on Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge for inspiration.  Challenge 165 is T for Triple-Point Card, colours of Tan, Tickle Me Pink, Tea Green, and Thistle, and a theme of Thank You, plus a butterfly, of course.  Woot, woot - I did them all!  

Mrs. A's instructions for the Triple Point Card can be found here.  As mentioned in previous blog posts, I am a bit challenged when it comes to fun folds or special cuts and I tend to make them more difficult than they need to be.  For this one I decided to make an A2-sized card instead of the square card in the instructions, but it worked out in the end.  I probably won't make this style again but it was fun to try something different.  All of the patterned paper and cardstock was in my scraps pile and I used some dies from my stash.  I have since put my supplies away but if memory serves, the butterfly was BoBunny and the sentiment stamp is Hero Arts.

I was also inspired by the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:
Crafty Catz 580 AG Optional Add Flowers (see patterned paper) 1/3
Word Art Wednesday 527-528 AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk2 1/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful and carefree day!

Fantastic job on the fun fold, looks awesome. I made one similar probably never to be tried again, I think Mrs. A's instructions are so much easier to read. Again beautiful card and lovely papers.
