Cuttin' and Stampin' 2014 DT Blog Hop

 Can you believe Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge Blog
 has been going for over a year now? There has been 
so much fun creating and sharing projects with you.
  Starting the first of the year they decided to make a few changes.  These changes include bringing you different types of projects, and to do that we needed increase the number of members on the team. They also decided to split the team in to two.

Today we are introducing the OrangeTeam.  If you happened upon the post by chance and would like to start at the beginning click HERE

You should have arrived here from Courtneys' page, and from here you will head to Kim's page.
Be sure to stop by each of them and welcome them to our 2014 Design Team.  We will have a drawing for each day of the hop.  Just leave a comment below and at each stop along the way.  We will announce blog winners on Friday along with our regular weekly winners

My project for today is a Tri Shutter card.  I wanted to show my style.. I love to make motion,and shared cards.  I love to surprise people when they open their cards. I love to think they get a little extra smile going on because of the change in the ordinary.  I also LOVE flowers.  I find it hard to make a card without flowers on it, either in the pattern of the paper or as an embellishment. The papers I used are from a 6x6 paper pad from My Minds Eye called Tangerine and the Stamp set I used is from  Paper Smooches called Woffers and Tweeters.

Here is a picture of the stamp set and the images.  It is so stinkin' cute!!!  You will have such fun with it.

Here is a side view on my card standing up.
