a 70th birthday card

We were recently invited to a friend's 70th birthday - and I wanted to make her something a bit nicer than the normal card. A friend on my yahoo group mentioned a tri-fold card and bingo I knew it would be perfect.

The birthday girl loves purple so it was a matter of searching through all my 'purple' collection and starting from there. The only problem I really had was that the original sheet that I cut from was a little bit smaller than the specified 12x12 inch sheet. Never the less I will be trying this one a second time later in the year. I'm sure it gets easier - cutting the slits was a bit tricky - but my fiskars cutter worked well with it .
