First Gate-fold Card

Click on any image to enlarge.

For a while I was only making easel cards, so I decided that I would learn some new designs (new for me). So this is my first, but not last, gate-fold card. I think it is such a nice way to send your message to others.

The floral paper is from K&Company's Best. It is such a beautiful backdrop for my card. The image is from a coloring book that I purchased at Target. I purchased three for $1 each and now I have a stack of new images to color, after printing them at 50% of the full size. I cut the circle on the front from Storybook, as well as the design. I colored the image with my prismacolors and gamsol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge (buttons, bows, brads or bling) (I chose bling)
Pollycraft Monday Challenge (distressing)

Cricut Cardz Challenge (gate-fold card)
