A tri fold card for my mother in law

 A big thank you to Nikki Toll for teaching the tri fold card at her class last week.  Although we made a Christmas themed tri fold card, I couldn't wait to try some other options!
And as luck would have it today is my mother-in-law Pat's birthday and my husband John had some photos of her from now and then that he wanted to incorporate into her card.
So I took those photos, grabbed some Twitterpated designer series paper and my new framelits and off I went.   I love these new framelits I am sure I will be using them alot.  I am really pleased with how this little card came out!  I hope she likes it and enjoys the photos!
 I goofed and the card came out too thick, so it would not stay shut.  So I improvised and held it closed with a tiny clothespin embellished with a sweet little button.  "Improvise" and don't get upset when you goof up!  A very valuable lesson, very hard to learn! :)
Be inspired to create!
