This week's teaparty is for Mary Jane in Bentonville, Ar. She has suffered a light stroke and is in hospital and, as a fellow card maker, she would love to receive some encouraging cards.
I decided to make a gatefold card and love this pretty SU dp, Floral District (now retired). I adhered to Rich Razzleberry c/s and punched a scallop trim border. As the dp is busy, I chose this simple floral image from SU World Treasures, using my markers to stamp it. Die cut my oval frames and adhered to card. Added the 4 pearls. The sentiment inside is from SU Feel Goods - "Those Who Bring Sunshine Into The Lives Of Others Cannot Keep It From Themselves".

Sue, What a beautiful design!!! The way you used the razzelberry and baja breeze to accent the floral district DP looks perfect! I especially like the scalloped border at the center where the gates meet! Very pretty card for Mary Jane!!!
