Something new to me - I've admired these triptych cards for a while but never attempted to make one before, I'm very pleased with how this one turned out even given the faux pax!
Made this yesterday after seeing Jo's card earlier this week as I needed a card for my sister in laws partner. I used Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kinkade CD and found this beautiful image Autumn Lane which I printed onto ice blue decoupage paper then cut into three equal pieces. Each piece was mounted onto black stardream, then gold mirri card before being mounted onto a piece of copper mirri card which had been punched along the bottom edge with a Martha Stewart border punch. My new copper coloured ribbon was added before everything was mounted onto the black base card. I finished the card off with a sentiment and sewed a brass button to the bow.

Now can you spot the deliberate mistake lol...........yes silly me stuck the bits in the wrong order ( the middle should be on the left hand side).............don't suppose the recipient will ever know though and it doesn't detract from the impact of the image.

It was very difficult to get a photo which did justice to the gorgeous colours of the image - the finished card was one of those you don't really want to give away!
