Try a Different Fold

Hi again! This is my 2nd post today, for my FOR FUN post please scroll down.

As you probably know, I LOVE Michelle Perkett's images, and try my best to join in with the challenges every week over at Michelle Perkett Studios. This week is a wonderful challenge, it's TRY A DIFFERENT FOLD! Well, I am partial to different folds, so I HAD to join in! I wanted to challenge myself to try something I've never done before, so I went for a triangle trifold card. Here it is.

I followed a very simple tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and this was really easy to make. This is what it looks like OPENED UP.

Here's the inside panel:

And a close-up of the front.....

The image is called Mary Mary, and you can find her in Michelle's Etsy shop HERE. I coloured her with Promarkers and cut her out using my nesties. The DPs are freebies by Kate Knight Totally Tropical Summer collection.

It all folds up and ties with a ribbon to hold it ribbon is turquoise organza, from my stash. I added a few die cut flowers and leaves to tie in with the tropical flowers on the DP to finish.

I am entering my triangle trifold card into a couple of other challenges too:
Thanks for looking, hope you liked what you saw!
