"Man With" Flowers

Good Morning Everyone!

I am up bright and early this morning, catching up on a couple of episodes of General Hospital that I've missed the last couple of days. I made this card on Friday and never got around to posting it. This is a tri-shutter card
I have seen these around all over the place and I have to admit, they really really scared me. I thought they were entirely too complicated to even try them. Then I saw the challenge over at Charisma Cardz which was to try something new and the one over at Hannah and Friends which was to try the tri-shutter card. So, I decided to just brave it and go for it; and you know what? It was easy as pie!! I had so much fun making this card! I used a piece of red Coredination paper for my base and embossed the ends with the bloom dots embossing folder and then sanded them. I also used Certainly Celery and grey coredinations paper. The image is from the digital set "Man with" from the Priscilla Styles store. I cut the image out with Petite Oval Nestabilities as well as the Celery and black mats. I colored the image with a variety of Copics and then sponged the edges with Firebrick Red distressing ink and also used some bashful blue ink as well. The sentiments and butterfly are from Hero Arts.
I am also entering this card into.. challenges:

1. Southern Girls Challenge: Anything Goes
2. Our Creative Corner: Fun with Folds
