Amazing-ly Feminine

I love the Pink Pirouette color in this year's InColors, but I had to kinda think about what color combo I wanted to use it with... and though I have many resources available to me to decide, I was far too lazy to come to the computer to make use of them, so I ventured into my cardstock files alone and on a quest.... and I came up with a combo that I kinda like. Perfect Plum, Sage Shadow and Pink Pirouette. Yum....

Then I wanted to make it pretty, too. I also wanted to make it interesting. My goodness, I love to challenge myself, eh? Anyway, I made this one a tri-fold kind of thing - it opens like french doors once you untie the ribbon. Here's how it turned out:
This card turns out to be 4.25" square at the base, so it easily fits into a standard card-sized envelope, just with space in the width.

Set: Amazing
Colors: Perfect Plum, Sage Shadow, Pink Pirouette
Other: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, White 7/8" wide organdy ribbon, dimensionals, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

I swear, looking at this card just makes me want to have tea with a good friend in an English garden, how about you?

Have a beautiful day, everyone~
