M5D Spring Flower Garden Tri-Fold Card

Hi my dear blogging friends....I have had this card ready to post for awhile now, and have not had the chance to do the write up.  I just got a new laptop, and I cannot figure out all the little quirks for the life of me.  I am hoping that this will post ok and that you can enjoy all of the pictures.  I made this card for McMahon Five Designs.  I have to tell you that this is one of my favorite all time cards that I have made.  I love the gatefold cards anyway, and this one turned out better than I had even hoped for.  I hope you like it too.  I used some wood paper for the corner dies that can be found exclusively at the McMahon Five Designs store.  The tiny roses, champagne pearl gems and gorgeous Tim Holtz hardware can also be purchased through M5D.  Sue just got some new inventory this week too that is to die for.  I have already made my purchase, and I am wondering how long her stock will last.  She has some of the most beautiful pearl adhesive flourishes that I have seen around, and she got a couple of the  Popcorn Bear stamps in that are too cute.  Drop over for a browse.  What an awesome variety of unique and hard to find items. 



Inside the card with a little pocket that houses a little tag/bookmark with a few special words on it from another digi that can be found at the McMahon Five Designs

The tag all by itself...

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today, and please let me know what you think of my tri-fold card.  I so enjoyed making it and would love to hear your thoughts on it.  Have a beautiful day my friends, and Happy Easter to you and yours...
