Gate Fold Card and Fan Challenges

Decided to combine these challenges as I had a background image that I wanted us and it seemed to be right for both

The Gate Card Challenge is at City Crafters and the fan challenge is here at Gingersnap Creations both of these blog have lovely challenges and nice examples to inspire you.

This is the card when it is closed

This is the card when it is stood up and open--I made the background image square to fit the inside before I added the text to it. Now to make a box for it !!

I got a Ginger Gem award for this-thank you Gingersnap Creations
