ROP SUMMERY / VACATION CHALLENGE

**
Can you believe how fast the weeks fly by -
it seems like I only just posted my card for
our last challenge and now it's time for our
next one.
My incredibly talented DT friend, Iris, is the
host for this fortnights challenge, the theme -
"Summer/Vacation"
Get out your Magnolia's/Greeting Farm stamps
and join in our Roses on Paper challenge.

I must say I struggled with this one - not that
I don't like summer - I LOVE summer, I struggled
because in the middle of a freezing cold dreary
winters afternoon, with no daylight left at 5pm
in the afternoon I was seriously left with no
summery inspiration whatsoever - all I could
think about was trying to keep my feet warm!!

And then, it all just seemed to fall into place.
Well, it wasn't quite like that - this card was
not intended to be my DT card - it was meant
to be a card my friend had requested that I
make for her dad's 70th birthday!!!
So, I started with my brown cardstock, that's
very masculine - then I spied my Basic Grey
Sultry paper pad, what???? that's not very
manly at all - ahhhh but it is very summery.
Add a very tropical looking Tilda, some hot
pink flowers, a little golden thong (flip flop)
charm and here's my card.

I wanted to try something a little different for my card
this week, so when I came across the technique for making
a Tri-Fold card at SCS I decided to give that a try.
It looks complicated, but it is surprisingly very, very easy,
and I think it gives cards a bit of a WOW factor.
Below you can see all the various layers from above.
