What a fun and creative challenge for today's WT525 challenge. The challenge was to use the elements to create a card. The theme of my card is water...hence the raindrops and the umbrella
I had fun created my own fold by reversing the gate- fold and still having the card open up in the middle, like a regular card. The card fold is a combination of a Top-fold, a Gatefold and a Dutch-fold card. Some day I may have time to create a tutorial on my blog for this.
I used the new dies and stamp (April Showers) from ODBD released yesterday. I love umbrellas and I had so much fun creating with it. The sentiment panel is layered with the new ODBD Layered Lacey Squares die. The designer paper is Shabby Rose from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Each little detail on your card is simply Amazing, Chris! The colors are so pretty, the design is incredible and perfect for the gates! I like how you have it well balance with the umbrella in one corner and flowers with foliage in the opposing corner~
