Sunday Morning Sharing . . .

Good Sunday Morning all . . .

Over the past week I've been inspired by many of my crafting friends to do some 'fancy fold' creations.  So, when I received a phone call from the mother of one of my neighbors requesting a 'special' card for her lady friend whom she was having lunch with later in the week, I knew exactly what style this lady would consider 'special' and immediately started working on this sweet Tri-Shutter Fold creation.

Accessories:  Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3533-Sun Kissed Fleur Precut Stamp Set, Heartfelt Creations  HCD 734 Sun Kissed Fleur die, Marianne LR0157 die, Kaiser pearls, Sizzix Susan Tierney Cockburn flower making kit, Graphic45 Secret Garden double sided cardstock (pocket tag), Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch
Envelope:  WeR Making Memories Envelope Punch Board
