City Crafter Challenge Blog week #53-Gate Card......

Happy Easter everybody who celebrates this holiday,I'm back in my craft room at last,it's been two weeks now but with the kids off school,the preperations for Jodie's birthday and lots of other celebrations I've been to,I just haven't had a minute for any crafting. Even though I've missed the crafting and blogging I've had one of the best two weeks ever, but I had a spare couple of hours this morning before we go to my Mom and Dad's house for Easter tea,so jumped at the chance to do this week's challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog. This week's hostess is Linda and the challenge is a Gate Card,it's been a long time since I've made a gate-fold card.
Here's my card:


It's quite a simple card today,all supplies are from Stampin'Up including the papers which are the new Sweet Stitches Designer Papers,they are one of my favourite new paper ranges of the moment. I used the border punch on some co-ordinating card and attached it to the two opening ends to give a scalloped edge.
It's a short and sweet post today as I've got to get ready now to go out but will be back to normal after Monday. Have a great Easter weekend !!!!
