Well its been a crazy week and we’ve arrived at another Saturday and that means another Utah Diva Sketch Challenge.

Here is this week’s sketch …

Diva Sketch 119As soon as I saw this sketch I knew what I wanted to do and that was a gatefold card – I just had to decide on what stamp set and colours to use.

Now I need to warn Carol to sit down …. this week I didnt rotate the sketch or anything!!

I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it and whats even better is you can earn it for free during Saleabration!

I just love that butterfly!

I really love any colour combination with brown and the bashful blue and soft suede go so well together.  This card didnt turn out how I had visioned it in my head but I had a couple of hurdles today so I hope you like what I’ve created.

I love making gatefold cards as they are a little different from a regular card in the opening and so easy  to make. Also, when someone receives one of these cards they just get the loveliest smile on their face.

This last picture shows the card open and as you can see the three little flowers in the top left of the card.  The adhesive pearls go so well on this card and just lift it to such an elegant card.

I do hope you like what I’ve made and now its time to click over to the next Sketchy Diva being Ruthie B!

  1. This set is #1 for mine for SAB. I love the vintage feel you have given to this card Leonie and a fantastic take on the sketch!! I have not tried gate fold before (gasp/shock/horror) but I love the idea of it with this set. The colours are beautiful and I am sure whomever rec’ this wld have a MASSIVE smile on their face. Beautiful.

  2. Leonie, this is gorgeous! I love the elegance of the gate fold, and you really showed off this set! This is my favorite of the Sale-a-bration sets. Your color combination is also beautiful!
