Summer Roses Gatefold

Hello, and a happy good morning to you!
Now that it is officially summer, I am pulling out the kind of roses that I grow - the ones in my craft room, lol! Well, I must correct that - we do have a gorgeous yellow rose bush by our back door. I am lucky if I can cut each bud before the deer eat it.

Let's get onto the card now! 
I'm in love with the Rose Builder stamps from WPlus9 Design and I had stamped and layered many images awhile ago in a ton of colors. I picked out aqua roses and a pale yellow rose for this card.

The card base (Fog card stock) has a stamped background that I heat embossed in white. 

I made an off-center gate fold card that begins with a panel cut 5-1/2 by 8 inches. The flaps are scored and folded at 2-1/2" and 1-1/4". I slid the A2 sized aqua panel for the inside of the card, and used a vellum belly band to hold the card closed. 

The sentiment and background images are also from WPlus9 Design, the Hello and Thanks stamps and dies. 
I'm playing along with the Flower Challenge that asks us to do some background stamping.

So happy that you stopped by! Hope you'll be back soon.
