House Mouse Gate-Fold Challenge

This week's challenge at HM was to make a gate fold card. While the card itself was extremely simple to make per the link to the instructions, it didn't address keeping the card closed, and as you can see I put my prong on the wrong side of the card......DUH! Now that would have worked if I had applied the adhesive to the right side (as you're facing the card) of the image, but I didn't, so I'm still pondering a way to close it without having to attach a velcro shape on there. I decided to make it a Mother's Day card as I still have people I need cards for. Since it will be used for that, there will be more added as a sentiment, but I'm not going to finish it for the recipient to see on my blog (in case they even look.) The image is one of the ones I won from the challenge that America sponsored a few weeks back. I'm so tickled that I got this one. It was fun to color and I think it's adorable. Be sure to stop by and see the other cards that the DT did. They always make the cutest cards. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week-end.
