Squigglefly Challenge #25

Today's challenge over at Squigglefly is to make a Gatefold card.

For this card I chose Teddy Bear-ing Gifts as my main image ~ another cutie from Chrissy Armstrong.  I wanted to use my scallop punches and have the balloons stick outside of the punch.  The tricky part was trying to maneuver the balloons outside of the punch enough so the scallop came right up to the edge, but I finally did it.  I used ribbon to tie my card shut, but you could overlap your images (tucking one behind the other) add a magnetic clasp or little velcro tab under the main image, or even use a photo turn.

Stop on by and join the Squigglefly challenge this week.  Remember, each week, on lucky participant is chosen to win two free images ~ it could be you.

Oh wow!! Jodi, this is just adorable hun!! I love how you've turned the gatefold on the side so it opens up differently than the directions!! Way to think outside the box!! ;) HUGS

Jodi, this is just too cute! Your coloring on the image is wonderful! I also like that you turned the card. I don't think I've seen a gatefold card done like this before, but I like it!
