Locking Gate Fold

This locking gate fold card features the same digi image from Bugaboo stamps that I used for yesterday's card, Mom Flower Trio, only dissected, just a bit, to create the locking feature with the word Mother's and images for both front panels.  Lots of colorful layers to match the flowers, a tiny baker's twine bow, some CTMH shimmer trim across the bottom, and a few skittles from Double Click combine for this cheerful Mother's Day card.

Challenges for today.....
Catch the Bug Challenge - Bright and Cherry 
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Mum's Day/Special Female
Di's Digi Designs Challenge - Lots of Layers
Clear It Out Challenge - Anything Goes; Stash- Patterned Paper older than 1 year (I found the paper for the card above in my box of  pp scraps.)

Speaking of scraps....
My feverish grandson couldn't go to school and spent Thursday and Friday here.  Friday, when he was starting to feel a bit better, he asked me what he could do.  I gave him my box of colored scraps to organize.
Check it out!!!

I'm thinking of renting him out.
