Twisted Thursday Gate Fold with Bugaboo

     It's Thursday and that means a new challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday.  Remember, our theme is always "Anything Goes" but there's an optional twist each week.  This week, the twist is to do a 'gate fold' card.  If you do just the Anything Goes part, then you can enter only once.  If you add the twist, you can enter a second time.

     Our sponsor for January is Bugaboo Stamps and I chose to use an image new for me, called "ggtouchcoffee" and the sentiment which goes with that stamp.  Here are photos showing the front, the inside, and one which emphasizes the gate fold.


     I colored the digi with ProMarkers and added a bit of glitter to her glasses.  I used some gold mesh and made the bow from a bit of lace (a new bow making technique for me and something I'll be doing more and more since I really love these!)   I used punches on the corners of the matted image and sentiment and called it finished, a nice CAS design with lots of open, white areas.

This looks so much like me in the morning, but I have ginger ale instead of coffee. Love that gold mesh. Have a good day. I don't want the 100° days for you to come too soon Connie, but I'd take 32° right now. LOL
