Tri-fold Card

I take part in a monthly technique swap with some ladies here in NZ and for this months challenge was to make a card with a tri-fold.  There are lots of tri-fold card tutorials and videos out there but I chose to go with a simple three fold diagonal card.

 

I did not read my instructions properly and ended up with a tall card.  I used some Kaisercraft paper for my backgrounds.  My centre focal point is a Spellbinders die with a Quietfire sentiment and a Peelcraft silver butterfly.   I used some old paper flowers with an enamel dot and a Die-namics leaf die.
 One of the inner layers has more flowers and leaves plus butterflies and the final layer has a dotted vellum butterfly die cut with a red gem embellishment.  

Quite pleased with the outcome and hope my swap partner does too.
