SPP June Mingle

This month for the ScorPalPals mingle we had to make a Gate Fold card.  I thought since the recent challenge was the Gatefold Easel card, that I'd make one of those.  I've been wanting to use this floral paper for awhile now and decided today was the day.  I have to admit that it took me a while to figure out how to use it.  

 Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Unknown; Framelits: SU (Labels); Embossing Folder: PC (Floral Fantasy); Ink: TH (Victorian Velvet); Stamps: SU (Messages for Mom); Punch: SU (Modern Label); Stickles: Crystal; Misc: Brads, Pearls

 Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Little Yellow Bicycle; Cricut: Base Camp & Locker Talk; Stamps: SU (Warmest Regards): Punch: SU (1" Square, 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle

Thank You Card for Dance

I signed Elsa up for a 6 week dance class to pass the time before the kids are out of school for the summer.  I wanted to make a thank you card for the teacher, but I left it to the last minute and so this is how the card turned out.  Hopefully, I'll be more organized for the next one.
