Hello everyone!
I am indeed back with another card. Today's card is my take on Ms Taylor's sketch #91 and the colors are based on this week's Color Throwdown. I love combining challenges! Wee!!! :)

As soon as I saw Ms Taylor's sketch, I knew I wanted to make a gate fold card. I remember watching Ms Beate Johns' tutorial and immediately fell in love with it! Now, I actually get to make one and share it. :) I decided to use the same pretty angel I used in this card. I love the detail on this angel! What's more fun is that I got to heat emboss her! Weee! The embossing isn't as clean or "sharp" as I've seen on most cards.. Even so, I love how it turned out. Yay!! :) I used VersaMark on the left panel and stamped a kind of flourish swirly image, as though the angel is blowing snowflakes through the air. hee hee. I stamped the "peace" sentiment with Memento Bamboo Leaves and a small leaf stamp in the center with a few rhinestones to complement it. The bottom border is a piece of patterned paper from Story of Us that I got from Michael's. It is so pretty. :) The card base is a cream colored textured c/s from Best Occasions. PTI Pure Poppy, Rich Avocado and Dark Chocolate were used. All stamps are Inkadinkado.

Thanks for looking! I hope you have a great rest of the week! :)
