Gatefold Card

I have created a Gatefold Card for the Cricut Circle Friday challenge in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  It was an emotional card for me to do at this point as I am still waiting for results of an MRI that I had last Friday regarding a lump on my breast. Hopefully, after two mammograms, an Ultra Sound and this MRI they will figure out how to get rid of this. The support and friendship of the members of the Cricut Circle and my special Purple Palace friends has been amazing. I so appreciate all of the prayers and thoughts that have came to me. I have felt surrounded by warmth from them and my family and friends during this fearful time.  The wait SUCKS!  I find my emotions go from positive to negative in a heartbeat.  Hopefully, the results will be known today and I can get on with whatever needs to be done to fix this.

Anyway... on a more positive note... If anyone would like the cut file for the Gatefold card, please go here: http://www.brensdesigns.com/2010/05/mothers-day-card-with-cut-file.html

I used George to cut the card, Home Accents and Home Decor cartridges. The Butterflies were in a kit I purchased and I used a pencil to curl the wings and a bit of glitter to add some bling and kept the flourish on the words due to the requirements of the challenge.

Bren, this card is amazing!!!

I hope your wait won't be too much longer and I will pray they WILL get to the cause and get it removed.

I am so sorry you are going through this and I can understand how this card was difficult to do.
