'V' is for .......

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for another challenge over on the ABC Challenge. We're up to the letter 'V' and what we would like to see is ....Violet on your projects.

This card was really difficult to photograph and it's still not that good but I think you can get the gist ! This is a card for my Mum's Birthday next week, I wanted to do a different fold and I've not had a go at a Tri Shutter for ages. I changed it slightly as I made it A5 size. I started by making a master sheet, using the blocking technique from Tim Holtz and also using Katzelkraft stamps and Aspects of Design stamps. The two embossed panels have been made with the Cuttlebug Stylised Flower EF and I've stamped inside using one of the stamps from the Tim Holtz Reflections set. The Happy Birthday panel is made using a stamp from the Just a Note set by Stempelglede.

The front panel has been stamped with a Katzelkraft stamp, after stamping it twice on a piece of scrap, then I've stamped over the top with a Stampin' Up stamp. I've cut it out using Labels 18 Nestabilities. The flower is made from Grunge Paper with a piece from an old book that I've stamped on. It's then been cut out using the Tattered Flowers die by Tim Holtz. The gorgeous brad is by Marah Johnson and I've attached a Word Stick and also 2 type charms that I've stuck a piece from the master sheet inside. The word 'Mum' is made using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzlit die and I've covered the letters with DI and then Glossy Accents and mounted the letters onto one of the dies from the Fancy Tags 2 set.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

    Sorry I haven't been commenting for a while but I have been one of those affected by the current Blogger problems. I have moved from IE to Firefox which seems to have cured the problem for now.
    Hope you have a good week.
