From this - to this #4

I didn't think I was going to get chance to get anything done today, however, I had an hour or so this morning, and thought I could get something quick done.  Just before we get to the project, I couldn't resist sharing this photo with you today.  My cat, Jess, was looking for attention and decided to plonk herself right down at my craft desk.



So off we go.


From this 



A friends birthday is this Friday so this is today's

To this



I made a 6" by 4" tri-shutter card.  Lorraine from Card Creations by Lorraine has a fabulous tutorial for the card base, click here to check it out.

The fans are from the Pagoda cart and cut at 2". I used pearlescent papers as oriental things alway seem to look so rich.  I also scored and folded them to make them look more realistic.

So a nice straight forward card today. Hope you like it.

This card as been entered in the following challenge

CardZ TV - anything goes challenge 

DL. ART favourite piece from June - just for fun, be a follower- get a follower.

Happy crafting.
