IBS Spring Lilacs Gatefold Card

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a gatefold card to share created with beautiful Inspired by Stamping stamps and paper.  

As purple is my favorite color, I totally love the Spring Lilacs stamp set and coordinating Spring Lilacs paper pack!

The Happy Birthday image is from the Mother's Day Bouquet stamp set and the decorative frame around it is from the Fancy Labels 2 stamp set. I used the coordinating Fancy Labels 2 dies. A small flower and a few pearls finish off the die cut sentiment.

The gatefold card open-I layered with a different Spring Lilacs paper pack pattern on the inside. 

This sentiment and the butterfly image are both from the Spring Lilacs stamp set. After die cutting the sentiment, I lightly sponged it while it was still inside the die.

The lilac shape was cut with my Portrait using the Spring Lilacs cut file. The image was then stamped, embossed, and colored with a blender pen. I added a few scattered pearls to the flower.  The lilac looks so real I can almost smell the wonderful scent!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

The Card Concept Challenge #9 - Monochromatic Purple (Classy & Elegant style)

Score-Pal Challenge #4 - More than one score and a stamped image (gatefold card cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 on both long sides)

Thanks for stopping by!
