Greatest Show on Earth Card

Alright... I have to fess up, I had been planning all week to make a card for the midweek Magnolia Challenge and just wasnt getting inspired. It was "Bling it on", and normally I am very blingy, but this week, not so much! While I was grooming dogs today, I got this idea for a card to fit the challenge, rushed home, made the card and when I went to see how much time I had left, entries had closed :( Ohhh well, maybe the challenge that starts today will fit it, and I am sure there are many others. I have missed making gatefold cards and posted one yesterday, but this is a gatefold variation and I hope you enjoy it....
This is the front of the gatefold variation card
I used a Tilda Princess
Prima and WOC flowers
Memory Box Die
Gemstones Cardstock
DCWV Paper
Recollection Gemstones
Stamped sentiments
"Believe" Charm from Michaels
Ribbon from my stash

I just had to have this ticket stamp!!!

I thought this sentiment went very well with the ticket stamp!

I just love how this gatefold variation unfolds!

I plan to enter the following challenges: Folds Folds and more Folds
Pick at least 2: ribbon, bling, blue, flowers, markers, a digi, monchromatic colour scheme, punched border 


  1. Oooh this is a great layout Rina! I love this style of card and those papers are just so stunning. Beautiful colouring and embellies too! :)
