First tri-shutter attempt

Tomorrow is my friend's birthday, and this is her card and gift.  First, the gift.  She and her boyfriend recently bought a house, so I wanted to do a "home" themed gift, because she is just so excited about it. 

The cuts are from Home Accents, and they measure 15" L x 6" H, and the shadow box is from Michael's.

Next, the card.  This was my first attempt at a tri-shutter, and I'm not sure if I like it.  I used the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers (link to the right), and it was so super easy. 

The hard part was deciding on all the colors and elements!  I used patterned paper from DCWV Sweet Stack, and the pink cardstock is stamped with the SU! "Swirls" wheel stamp.  The tag on the middle section is from Storybook, and the stamp is also Stampin' Up.  The cake is from Stretch Your Imagination, embellished with some glitter.  Finally, the little embellies are just stickers from Michael's that I thought went well with this color scheme and theme.  I think I've about convered it all, so thanks for visiting!
