Belles 'n Whistles "Tea Time" Candy update

Whaaaaaaaaaa!!!! I'm not too old to cry am I? Oh I am so upset I was taking pictures of this card and one of the bulbs for my light box smashed. Grrrr it's the second one! Now I've only got the one left, looks like I'll be bulb shopping. Oh well, can't let it spoil my fun!


Today's card is very exciting for me for a few reasons. One is I just got my new awesome cool Spellbinders Nestabilities "Beaded Circles" in that I ordered HERE from McMahon Five Designs!!!!! Secondly this is my Very first Gate Fold card. It's really cool, you gotta try it. I used the very lovely Midnight Madness sketch #72.
Here you will see how I stacked the dies using pop dots to give even more of a 3-D look.I embellished the circle die with Tear Drops. Image is by Belles 'n Whistles called "Tea Time". She is usually sitting on a stump but I cut the image away so she could sit in the frame instead. Flowers are by Prima and Wild Orchids. I enhanced them with Distress ink and Stickles.I used some really stunning ribbon in beige and chocolate.Here you can see how the Gate Fold card opens up. And of course I haven't even started on the inside. Midnight Madness sketch #72. Thank you for the beautiful sketch to work with?

I hope you enjoyed today's card and that it has inspired you to try a Gate Fold style card they are really cool. Also get on over to McMahon Five Designs for your Spellbinder Nestabilities!!

*****************Candy Update*****************
I have to put off announcing the winner of my Blog candy. Isn't as easy as I anticipated. Not everyone who left a message followed all of the rules and or left more than one message so some of them needed to be deleted. I am still going through the list and will announce the winner when I am finished. Sorry for the delay.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a Sparkling Day!!! Hugs Bonnie :o)

Lori said...

Great job on the gate card, Bonnie! I love all of the 'enhanced' flowers and elements you've added. What a sweet image, great coloring! It is a lot to go through, all of the blog candy comments. When I had mine, I wanted to visit each entrants blog. I started the day after I announced it and checked for the 2 rules that I requested. Doing this each day kept the craziness at a lull, I think. Good Luck!

Lynda Nielsen said...
