Stampin B's Challenge #36 Tri Shutter Card

Well......as I worked on this project I wanted to scream at the hostess of this challenge. This would be hard, as it was ME!!!!!!

I challenged the Stampin B's team to make a tri shutter card because I have long admired them and had never tried to create one myself. Well....I will still admire them, but I am not so sure I will have the desire to make another one -- at least, not for a long time. There was also a twist involved....there must be snowflakes!!

I am actually quite pleased with the 'open' result, but am not pleased with what it looks like when it is folded flat. However, since there are no rules....I just didn't photograph it flat......and that made me happy!.....lol!!!

Please be sure to visit the Stampin B's blog to see the work of the rest of the team.
(After this challenge, I hope they are still speaking to me!)

You crack me up Joanne :) This card is just outstanding and OH SO Gorgeous!! Who cares what it looks like folded up anyway? It's to be displayed just as you photographed it! The layering, snowflakes and colors are just STUNNING! I WISH I had time to play along, but I'm just too busy and have to wait until after Christmas!!
