Accordian Card

I am so happy that I have finally gotten the chance to make and post something. Before my cruise I had made my sister a Tri-shutter card for her anniversary.  Well, I had also made my Mom the same style card for Mothers Day. After I got back from my vacation my sister wasn't very happy with me.  You have to know my sister, but she only wants original cards from me. To appease her I decided to make her another one.  Thanks to my fellow blogger Jenn at Craftyful Gardens, http://www.craftyfulgardens.blogspot.com/, I was able to find something to create just for my sister. Make sure to check out Jenn's blog, she has some really cute things there. So here is my card that I made for my very special and only sister. I think she is going to really like it.
