Here we have a card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge PPA55. This is a color challenge, namely turquoise, melon and daffodil. As it happens, I just finished a birthday card for a friend's birthday and I think my color combination is very close to the color challenge, so I am submitting this card.

The stamp set is a retired Stampin' Up set called "Groovy" that I found on Ebay. The friend is turning 60, so I think he will appreciate the sentiment, "Hippie Birthday!"

The card style is a TRI Shutter Card . I saw a tutorial at The Craftiblog
that was very well done. This tutorial enable me to be successful at the TRI Shutter design. I really enjoyed having so many sections to decorate because this stamp set has nine images from which to choose.

Thank you PPA for all these fun challenges. I have some spare time between semesters so I am enjoying being able to participate.
