ROP Challenge #15 - Gate Fold Card

Hello and welcome to our 15th ROP Challenge. This time our very talented Jodi is hosting the challenge and she came up with a fabulous idea:
Make a gate fold card and add some stitching!
Stitching can be made by hand, machine or faux stitching. For all the details on the challenge and to see the prize that is up for grabs this time, generously sponsored by Summer, visit our
ROP Challenge Blog

It's been a while that I made a gate fold card, but it is so much fun! I have to do this style of card more often! For my card I used Magnolia's Tilda in Spring Rain and colored her with copics. I added some Stickles (waterfall) to the rain drops and to the puddle around Tilda's feet. And for the stitching part I just added some faux stitching this time around the image. My DP is from Basic Grey's Marakesch paper pad. I love the bold colors!

Hope you'll join us for the challenge and don't forget to check all my fellow DT members blogs, they've made stunning creations.

Hallo und willkommen zur 15. ROP Challenge. Diesmal ist unsere talentierte Jodi der Host unserer Challenge. Sie hatte eine tolle idee:
Macht eine Gate Fold Card und naeht auf Euerer Karte.

ROP Challenge Blog

Es ist schn ne Weile her wo ich meine letzte Gate Fld Karte gemacht habe, aber es hat viel Spass gemacht. Muss ich unbdingt wieder oefters machen. Ich habe Magnolia's Tilda in Spring Rain mit meinen Copics coloriert. Die Regentropfen und die Pfuetze um Tilda's Fuesse habe ich mit Stickles (waterfall) beglittert. Ich habe diesmal nicht wirklich genaeht sondern Stiche aufgemalt mit meinem Spica Glitter Pen um das Motiv herum. Mein DP ist Basic Grey's Marakesch, ich mag die kraeftigen Farben!

Hoffe ihr macht mit bei unerer Challenge und vergesst nicht auch die Blogs meiner DT Kollegen zu besuchen, sie haben ganz tolle Sache gemacht.

Thanks for stopping by!
