Good morning crafters!
I hope you are all having a happy crafty weekend. I managed to find my charger for my old camera so i am alot happier!
Today, i have a little inspiration in the shape of a tri fold shutter card.  I actually made one of these last week for the first time and i was really happy with the result but i cant show you it yet as it is a Father's Day card/gift ;)  So, i thought i would make another one that i can share with you right now!

Papers: Alla Prima Collection
Punches: circle, scalloped circle and Tonic butterfly
Inks: Tim Holtz distress ink (walnut stain, spiced marmalade and mustard seed)
Sentiment: Stampin UP!
