My niece Krista's June Challenge

is to make a unique card. Even though this is a standard size card (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) it is unique because it is a gatefold card. This was fairly simple to make but I really like it.

Here is the outside of the card:

Here is the inside of the card:

And here is the card partially opened up:

You can read all about Krista's challenge here.

I'm sure she would love it if she has more people participating! So, what are you waiting for? Go, create and remember - be unique! And tell her that I sent you.

Supplies used: Sentiments by Cornish Heritage Farms; paper from CTMH; flowers from Imaginisce and button brads from my stash. I also used my Spellbinders' Round scalloped Nestibilities in my Cuttlebug. I blinged it up on the inside with pink rhinestones and lime green dew drops for the flower centres inside the card. The sentiments were stamped with Versa Mark Mountain Lake on the outside of the card and the inside sentiment was stamped with SU Purely Pomegranate.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Oma! Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.

This card is so pretty! I love these pastel coloures you've used. I've never made a gatefold card. But it looks wonderful. I would like to try it!
