Great Impressions Friendship Card

Good morning all you crafty people!

If you caught my Great Impressions Stamps post two weeks ago, you might remember that tea cups and tea pots are two of my favorite stamp images.  My eye was particularly drawn to this Great Impressions Spring Teapot Rubber Stamp (E667)
  featuring tulips, pansies and hyacinths. 

It made a perfect focal point for the belly band of the gate fold card I am sharing with you today. 
The inside of the card features Great Impressions A Good Friend Rubber Stamp (E830) .
Sentiments don't have to be stamped on solid cardstock.  I love to stamp them directly on a piece of designer paper, so the inside is as pretty as the outside, especially, when the sentiment is as lovely and true as this one.

I am entering this gatefold card in the following challenges:
Fussy & Fancy Challenge # 185 - Fancy Fold or Shaped Card 
A Gem of a Challenge #192 - Ribbon or Lace 
Make My Monday Challenge #44 - Embossing Heat or Dry  (After a coating odf clear Wink of Stella, I clear embossed the tea pot 2 times to give it a shiny china look.)
Through the Craft Room Door Week of April 18th - Anything  Goes 
Fairytale Challenge #166 - More than one fold 
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - A Nice Cuppa (I used my cuttlebug for all the die cuts.)

And don't forget to enter the
