PP234 Indescribable Gift Interlocking Gate Fold

Here's a card I created using The Paper Players - Theme Challenge - "Think Spring".  With old man winter not ready to go away, and has decided to give us another 6" of snow in Maryland.  I really am looking forward to some warm weather.  What better time to play with one of my favorite stamps from the Spring Catty.  I have been playing with this stamp set, and I love this image on Vellum and using my Blendabilities to color it from behind the image.  I love the soft look.  This is the second card I created using the same layout, the card below is I first one I created but I was not like it with the Early Espresso.  I wanted the flowers to be a focal point of this card and I think I achieved this with the second card (above and to the right).  When I switch to Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.  

 I have seen so many great cards using this stamp and I wanted to make it a little different so that is why I went with the Interlocking Gate Fold Card. The Window Framelits made this easy to make, I have noticed that the Window Framelits are not even on all sizes.  Not sure if it is just me, but I have found that you need to make sure they line up well before adhering them down and sometimes I have to turn them make it work.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please let me know what you think, I love comments!

Thanks again,
