Tri Fold Nature Walk

Today, over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, they've laid down the challenge for fancy fold cards - I don't think I've ever actually finished one of these Tri Fold Shutter Cards - but I'm relatively happy with the way this one turned out.  Lots of little pieces depending on the sections you want to highlight.  It's interesting to look through the gallery on Splitcoast for this type of card  - just to see the different ways that people have place their papers and what they've done to embellish their creation.
AND, over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, the DT has a wide variety of fancy folds cards to share for inspiration.

I'm off to the city to do some shopping and then I'm looking forward to having dinner this evening with a few of my former (won't say "old") college roommates.  We've been staying in touch for over 30 years!!!

Hope you have some life long friends to share good times with.
Thanks for stopping by to visit

Joan, I too have been a bit intimidated by this type of card because there are so many panels but you did a beautiful job using one of my favorite stamp sets. The colors and textures you selected are gorgeous together. I love that you created your own patterned paper to coordinate. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
