My Favorite Challenge Thursday!!

So, as I said last week, they have changed the way we are doing our challenges over at the My Favorite Things Member Forum. We are now combining all of our weekly challenges into one main every Thursday you can go to that week's Challenge and Chatter Thread to see this week's My Favorite Challenge, as well as, this week's My Favorite Sketch Challenge. Here are the details again, just in case!!
*A new My Favorite Challenge and Chatter thread is started every Thursday
*Complete the My Favorite Challenge by Wednesday at 10:00 AM
*ONE winner will be awarded $10 in MFT Money each week (not good on bubble bin sets)
*This will NOT be a random draw
*The winner will be chosen by Joanne, Christina OR the guest judge of their choice
*The winner for the week will be posted after the challenge is posted the following Thursday

Ready to play? This week, your My Favorite Challenge is to make a tri-fold card. A tri-fold card is one that opens from two sides to reveal the inside of the card. Here are a few types of trifold cards from the
SCS Resources Library:
IMPORTANT: Please do NOT "double dip" for the MFT challenges. Since the My Favorite Challenge and the MFT Sketch Challenge have prize winners, Here is the general rule of thumb:If you can win something tangible, then your entry needs to be ONLY for that challenge. So, if you want to participate in the SCS color challenge and then use the MFT sketch? That is totally fine, since you can only win something for the MFT sketch. If you do the My Favorite Challenge, it can't be combined with the MFT sketch challenge or the One Click Challenge since they all have a prize.
Your keyword for this week is: MFTMFC3
Your deadline is Wednesday, June 17 at 10:00 AM EST
Winner will be announced on June 18th

Now, after you read through those rules, and you see my card, you are gonna laugh...cause I totally double dipped, lol!! I was just chugging right along making this card for my nephew's birthday and when it was done I thought....well POOP!! SINCE I am not eligible to win anyway, I don't think it is that big a deal, but if you want to play in the sketch, this week's is posted here(third post down, be sure to use the keyword MFTSC85), as well as the weekly challenge you HAVE to have two cards. Oh well, I tried right!!

For my card I used my Ben Paper Dolls set. I needed a card for my nephews birthday, which is tomorrow...can you BELIEVE IT?? He is a year old and is changing a little more everyday...he is such a wonder to me. I promise to have a picture soon! Poor kid has a runny nose today and is very sneezy...darn weather! Anywho, I decided to use the Superman costume out of the set, and what superhero would be complete without his trusty sidekick!! Both images were stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored with Copics. I actually colored the outfit separately and cut it out so I wouldn't have to mask...I really hate masking. I then pierced a border around the edge and layered it with Pacific Point and Riding Hood Red. The DP is from the Riding Hood Red Patterns pack, and the ribbon is also from SU. The brads are from Creative Express. I used the Boy sentiment from my Cuddle Up Carter set, and the Birthday from The Poppies, but I had to mask out the 's.
