Old Mailbox Gate-fold Challenge Card

This is a the card that I am entering in a card contest for stamp show that is coming to Milwaukee.  The show tomorrow and the cards were due to the sponsor last Monday.  The theme is mailboxes and I used a digital stamp for this card. 

There are three winners chosen and each person gets show dollars to spend at the  that day at the stamp show.  Top prize is $100--wish me luck!   I made card is on Friday, the 13th, so that will bring me extra good luck!  I won two free tickets to this stamp show earlier this year--so maybe that is an omen that one of the two cards I am creating will be a winner! 

I really like making gate-fold cards and I tried a new way to make the flap by using ovals as the base.

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment—Old Mailbox--Sprinkle N' Sparkle Digital Stamp

Cardstock--Gina K White; Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip; Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Patterned Paper

Accessories—Copic Markers; SU Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button, 1/4 " Grosgrain Ribbon, Oval Framelits; CTMH Olive Fiber

Very pretty - I'm not one that does a lot of fussy cutting and am always impressed when I see it done.
