Gate Fold Bouquet



Hehe, I made a gate fold card for the first time...they're fun! It's for this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge. I used my Flourishes Winter Bouquet set. This set is currently sold out at Stamper's Dream, but Michelle has lots of other Flourishes sets in her store that you can see HERE.

The main image was stamped on Life Stories DP (the back, which is just like Kraft CS), colored with Copics, and I added Waterfall Stickles to the berries to match the ones on the DP. I also added some Gold Stickles to the center of the large flower. The upper left-hand corner of the main panel tucks under the bow to keep the card closed.

Here's what it looks like opened up:

Thanks for the well wishes yesterday. I'm still having dizziness today but I'm taking my meds like a good little girl {giggle} and hoping it goes away SOON!

Have a great day!
