Gateway to a Garden

 Hello!  I was  tested by the recent challenge at Mrs. A's Butterflies.... her guest selected A for the challenge and we were asked to use an Arch on our butterfly cards and I had no idea what to use for my arch.  Then the light came on and I thought I should use a gate with an arch leading into a garden.  I pulled out Our Daily  Bread Gilded Gate die and a frame die from Spellbinders Card Creator and used white glossy paper to build my gate with an arch. I only used the top part of the frame and attached with the gate.  I used a pattern paper from ODB Shabby Rose Collection Paper Pad to create the garden filled with roses and butterflies. I added green vines cut with Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die and Prima Pink Roses with layered butterflies punched from pattern papers and pink CS.  I decided to not use a sentiment on the front but used that on the inside (shown below)  of the card finished with more of the pattern papers and a sentiment from Repeat Impressions.

This is so perfect and great thinking on how you have combined 2 different dies to create your archway. I just love those roses and the vine creeping along the trellis. Love the inside of your card too. Thankyou for fluttering by my Archway challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
