Thankful for You - SNSDC55

This week we have an easy challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge blog...make a "Thank You" card.  We all have people we need to thank, whether it's for a gift or kindness we've received or for just what they mean to you.

If you have visited my blog for very long, you know I love fancy fold cards.  I recently came upon this Double Gate Fold Card tutorial on Dawn O's blog.  I wanted to give it a try but also wanted more patterned paper.  So, this is my version.

I cut apart a Say it with Crystal bling flourish and used part on the upper left side and part on the lower right.  I then cut the reminder into individual rhinestones to use on the sentiment panel on the front and on a corner accent on the interior.

 When you open the card, the bling flourish on the bottom right side becomes a butterfly's flight trail.

Here is a pic of the card opened up.  I did lots of interior decorating on this one.  Both the sentiment for the front and the sentiment on the inside are from the same Many Thanks digi stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Prima (Madeline)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Many Thanks)
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (tea dye)
Embellishments/Tools:  Flowers, rub-ons, Say It with Crystals bling flourish (Prima), Spellbinders (Circles small, Lacey Circles, Classic Edges 2, Classic Decorative Inserts 5, Decorative Photo Corners), SU Journal Writer (close to cocoa)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ #140 - Build up your card 
Tuesday Throwdown #99 - 3D 
Scrap Creations Bingo - I used the middle column - flowers, die cuts, digi image
Divas by Design #36 - Fabulous Flourishes

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll play along with us in this week's challenge.  I also hope you'll give one of these Double Gate Fold Cards a try.  They are truly easy to make but can have such a nice "Wow!" factor.

This is such a lovely card! Everything about it is beautiful - the inking around the sentiment, the papers, the fun's really pretty.

This is beautiful! The paper is a perfect choice. It compliments the sentiment perfectly. Thank you for sharing with us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.

What an amazingly beautiful card! I love the sentiment and the design paper, but I think my favorite element are the rhinestones. The way you cut them apart for the front...they balance so nicely. And on the inside for the butterflies trail! Nice job! Thanks for joining us again at SSiC.
