Friends Trellis Card

Hello my crafty friends! Today my card is a Trellis Split Front Card that I found on YouTube done by Bibi Cameron.  It is a very easy fun card to create.  My only thought on it is that I think 2 vertical strips should e added to the ack of trellis to make it a little sturdier.  I have adorned my card with Spellbinders/ Susan's Garden Gerber Daisy and Carolina Allspice f rom the latest release - Painters Garden . Card base is 4-1/4" X 6" and the link to YouTube video is here I decided to add a piece of pattern paper (P13 Till we meet again used here) on top front and also on inside. 3 Carolina Allspice S4-1234 were cut from Susan's Specialty Paper , colored with OLO Alcohol Markers flowers R1.7 & R1.8 stems from tan / brown markers and leaves YG2.5 & 8.5 then shaped using Susan's Ultimate Tool Kit T021 .  Susan's YouTube for creating can be found here . 1 Gerber Daisy S5-531 was cut, colored and shaped YouTube for creating found here .
