Happy Monday and it's BBTB2 challenge week with Penny Shuberg as our talented hostess. She asked us to design from the Easter Solution cartridge and to use that darling little chick as our main design. I LOVE this has wonderful Easter Eggs, all scrolled and layer. And that darling little chick is just ....well......chicka-precious! I did Gate Fold Card design. Normally the gate cards open and stand, however this style opens from the top. Gate Fold cards don't usually fold flat so I made a little tab just under the overlay of Happy Easter, and the tab slips under the popdotted Easter Egg on the lower flap.
The top flap has the Happy Easter sentiment from the Easter Solutions card and that was mounted on an embossed white cardstock shaped with my Nestie, and that was mounted on a larger Nestie with the green checkered paper. I added a lime green ribbon just above the layer.
The bottom layer has two chickens and an easter egg.... mounted on a strip with green checkered paper and the same lime green ribbon.

Here is a side view of the Gate Fold design.

Carole, your little chicks are too cute.... Loving the gingham papers, the colours are so vibrant, and the touch of lime ribbon - always a difficult colour to use. Liking the different take on the old gate fold style... Hugs xx
