Summer Strawberries Tri shutter card for M5D

I hope you are all enjoying your summer, and thanks for coming to visit today.  I would like to share something that I have been holding off on trying for awhile, and while I am in my brave crafting mode, I have been trying all the new things I can.  I am not sure how long this will last before I feel intimidated again ; )

This is a tri-shutter card made with a delicious strawberry image that can  be found at the McMahon Five Designs Store.  Doesn't it look juicy and delicious enough to make your mouth water?  The pearls and flourish can be found at the M5D store as well.  I had a little bit of trouble with the envelope on this one, because I don't have a template for this size of a card, so I had to improvise and hope for the best.  I used another of Sue's (M5D) images for the closure on the envelope with the cart full of strawberries.  I used my copics to color these images, so that I would get nice, bright, bold colors.  I am sure that I will try this style of card again sometime soon.  It was alot of fun to make and really easy too. 

I hope you enjoy my card today, and please let me know what you think of my first attempt at a tri-shutter card.  Thank you as always for taking the time to drop by and most especially to those of you kind enough to leave me a comment.  You are what keeps me going. 

Have a wonderful and blessed day.

WOW, that's a ton of challenges. Way to go. I love what you've done with this tri-shutter. All the details make if work beautifully. What template did you use for the envelope?? I love that it's a bit bigger to hold all the embellies.

Hugs - Jen

You have made a great work - your card is really lovely and the envelope is matched perfect and is also very lovely.

But I'm really sorry - the lovely hÄnglar Challenge is a challenge only for hÄnglar-stampimages. If you have hÄnglar images, I would be very happy if you try it again - you are very welcome to play with us at the LHO-Challenge.
