Triptic with colored brads in corners. Don't remember the measurements, but you can trim off the bottom where the stems are if you don't leave enough space between the sections. I used just the stem from the stem with the leaf on it with the gable green, and used the wisteria with the gable green for grass around the stems. I did not try to line up the flowers identically in all three sets, which I probably should have to truly call it a triptic, but I love the look of it anyway. And since all the flowers are two step, this card does take a little bit of time to put together, I like to do 2-3 at a time, it's usually just as easy to make 2-3 as to make 1.

honesty thread: I really like it just as it is! ya know they say to add ribbon to spice up a card but I don't know where it would fit in on this card, I think it just got overlooked in the mass of uploads.

Honesty thread: The card is quite lovely but I think I would have used all brads of one colour, moved the pink flowers to the centre and maybe done the first mat in the same pink as the flowers - the blue and purple are so close in colour - I think the pink would make the card pop a little more. Mind you, they probably look more distinct in person.
I really do love the card though.

Honesty Thread: I have never seen anything like this and love it! If I were to change anything it would be for balance - maybe move the pink flowers to the center. And then maybe, maybe add a small greeting to the bottom right hand corner of the bottom panel. (Something from EFF or the like).
But, as I said, this is so original and I do love it! If it came to me in the mail I would be so excited!!! TFS!
