Don't Fence Me In Challenge

Today at Double D Challenges our theme is
Don't Fence Me In,
meaning we want to see a fence on your project!

Just for your fun inspiration we have the mood board below
you give you a few ideas!!

Back when SU released their Jan-June 2020 mini catalog
I saw the cutest card made with a fence that opened
and thought it  represented the upper left corner well.
I had planned on buying the stamp set and so on but of course

as usual, time got away from me.
I decided I would see what I had in my stash to 'case' their card.

My card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, it had to be to fit everything on!
I will list all supplies below.

I started with a brick embossing folder and lucky for me it ran
width wise instead of lengthwise.
I had to emboss it in two parts
then when done I rubbed white ink here and there on it.
I die cut a circle from the center then inked behind it on the card base.
then stamped my sentiment, cut a second circle (one inside the other)
for the ring around the outer side.

Then I just gathered up various stamps and a few already die cuts from my stash.
(cats~grasses~butterfly~and the inner 'trims')

When the gate opens, inside are a few more flowers and a little kitty hiding.

Plenty of fabulous inspiration from the Design Team...
pop on over to Double D and take a peek!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  SU Silhouette Sentiments
Power Poppy Lavender
JustRite Seeds of Summer
Embossing Folder:  the paper Studio Bricks

Fabulous layout. I love how you framed the sentiment with the flowers and gate and the cat looks like he is ready to go into the garden.

How resourceful you are Diane - this is a brilliant CASE! Love the soft brick background and the arch and opening gate with all those bright flowers. Those little pusscats add the perfect detail too! Vicky x
