It's time to reveal the card I made 
For the March Swap at the
Society of Stampaholics
Card Chain Challenge. 
I haven't played in such a long time. 
I chose the colour theme to work with 
which  was  Pink, Lavender and Yellow.
I decided on a Trifold Shutter Card
and sent to Jo in England.
I used the excellent instructions
on liz's blog here.  Just making a slight
 adjustment as my card was not 12 inches long. 

I used pink card stock to make the shape
and design papers from my stash + lavender
plain card  and cut and layered up each panel.
Flower print is a Penny Black Stickeroos
called  Sun Kissed. 
Sentiment is Outline stickers by Anita's.
This makes a total of 30 new card shapes 
I have tried so far this year and  there
are many more to follow.!
