Flourished Blessings, You're A Hoot - Tri Shutter Card

I just love making these cards. This is called a Tri Shutter Card and the instructions can be found HERE on SCS.

The Theme is Fall/Thanksgiving with a leaf.

                                    This is the card open.

This is the card almost closed.

I like this paper because the colors are not your traditional fall colors.

CTMH October SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart,  October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

This is group #2.  When you are finished with this group, you can click on the first name of another group and view all of those fabulous works of art. The complete list is in the sidebar to your right.

This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This is a 5" x 7" card and I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #21  for the design of the card.

Paper and ribbon are from the Jingle Creative Basics paper pack.

The image was colored using Copic Markers.
I used the half pearls from the connections club and colored them tulip to match the paper.
The tree was stamped twice. One was cut out and layered for a 3D affect.

The stitching around the card was done by hand with embroidery floss.

Now "Hop" on over to Krista's Blog to see her gorgeous work!

If you get lost on the hop or find links that aren't working, you can find the complete list in the column to your right.
