Gatefold Easter card

Jacksonbelle this week asks us to 'try a new fold' - well, I was all set to try making a 'joy fold' card - found a video on You Tube that had good ratings ... and then found that You Tube didn't want to play properly. When I can get You Tube to play nicely, I might have a go at the joy fold card, even if I'm too late for the Jacksonbelle challenge - and there's one also on Project Tuesday.

So I've resorted to an old favourite (that I admit doesn't take any thinking about) and have made a gatefold Easter card, which fits fine for Doodle Palace 'create a card using more than one score line with an Easter theme'.

It's also for:

Kaboodle 25: 'fancy folds' (although it's not really fancy, but a bit different to the norm) - I'll try to do something more fancy for this challenge before the deadline
Corrosive 52: 'wings' (the butterfly)
Die cut dreams 36: 'Easter'
Another for Spoon full of sugar 91: 'spring is in the air'
Another for Belli 85: 'butterflies or dragonflies to celebrate the coming of spring'
Cupcake inspiration 47: As you can see from the picture inspiration, the cupcakes are decorated with pale pink and blue - I know that my card has other colours, but it was the pastel look that inspired me
All supplies, except the irridescent card blank, are from Poundland.
