New Tri-Fold Card

Sandy Allnock at Operation Write Home came up with a new tri-fold card giving lots of room to write on the back page.  Her tutorial is Here.
I loved the paper  I used on my first try but I didn't like the way I colored the lamp.(I like the liquid pearls but not the base)  So I made a second card and I am really am very happy with it.
So, here is my first card:
And here is the inside:
I used Unity stamps for this first card.

Second card, using a digital image by Whoopsadaisy on the front and Hero Arts sentiments inside:


Cuttlebug flowers with liquid pearl centers.  Butterflies - Martha Stewart punch with liquid pearl body.

If you are interested in trying a tri-fold, I encourage you to try Sandy's - easy measurements, lots of room to write.

Challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - something new
Stamptacular Sunday - no square card
Our Daily Bread - new and old
Crafty Creations - something new
Timeless Tuesday - something new
