Just a Little Dirty

Happy Thursday!! Thanks for all the well wishes on my little dental fiasco ;) - I think that antibiotic is starting to help and the pain in my tooth and jaw has really improved - hmm...does that mean I can forgo my procedure next week??? LOL!! Wishful thinking, huh?? Anywho - today starts a new week of challenges and chatting over at the MFT forum on SCS - Christina and Cindy have this week's My Favorite Challenge and Sketch challenges up - you can view them here. The card I have for you today is for the My Favorite Challenge - this week's challenge is to make a tri-fold card!! Cool challenge, huh?? I had fun with this one - I tried a style of card I had never done before (which in my opinion - any challenge that gets you to try new things is truly the sign of a great challenge;) ) - I chose to try a Triangle Trifold card. It's amazing what a couple of extra score lines can do for a card - you can really make a "wow" card in no time!! I chose to use the MFT "Maid For You" set (this is one of my fave WTG sets). I paper pieced the wallpaper, drew on the flooring and her fishnets and then colored the rest of the image in with Copics. It really is a sexy little card and I think what really sets it off is that flirty white bow holding the card closed - it's some beautiful white ribbon from the MFT Chocolate Kiss Ribbon Nest. Here is the inside of the card - and you can see how it folds out as well...

The frame around the sentiment is actually a sticker frame - it came in the same stack as the paper I used for this card came in (it's from an old paper stack by a company called Stemma - the Damask Scrap Pad). I did one of the larger Triangle Trifold cards - so the finished size of my card closed is a 4 in. square. Such a quick little card to do - but can you imagine your hubby's face when he finds it in his briefcase one morning??? Hee hee...thanks SO much for stopping by - I'm feeling better and things are starting to calm down around here a bit - so I'm looking forward to more stamping time over the weekend!
