SOFTPENCIL THURSDAY - PEEK-A-BOO

Happy Thursday!  In a bit I get to take DD2 to the bus stop and then it's off to the dentist.  Wish I could stay home and craft while the kids are at school today:)  This week, the SOFTPENCIL DT gets to play with one of the NEW HALLOWEEN/FALL IMAGES - "Halloween Peek-a-Boo."  You can find this image along with SOFTPENCIL's SEPTEMBER BUY ONE GET ONE FREE SALE at SOFTPENCIL SHOP.  Please make sure to also visit SOFTPENCIL BLOG to find out everything that's happening at SOFTPENCIL and also have the opportunity to see the rest of the DT projects using this week's image.  I'd also like to personally welcome ANNE-KATRINE back to the DT!  You can find her new blog linked on my sidebar under the SOFTPENCIL DT.  Finally, we'd love to have you come join us at SOFTPENCIL GROUP on PCP for all the fun chats, tutorials, etc. that go on there.  You may even find  a FREEBIE or 2:)

So for my project this week, I created a gate fold card.  I colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  I LOVE playing around with Michu and Ratiny's colors - various patches, etc.  I cut image out with Nesties and then daubed with SU Pear pizzazz ink.  Sentiment is from Northwoods and is stamped in Staz-On timber brown and cut with nesties, daubed with SU cherry cobbler.   Papers are SU peach parfait, cherry cobbler, pear pizzazz and early espresso, which follows the challenge at COLOUR Q.  I also added some Memory Box DP with coordinating colors.  I used a Sizzix EF on the early espresso CS and a Cuttlebug EF on the peach parfait and then ripped some to the edges to give them a distressed look.  Flowers are from my stash - they were literally laying on the floor of my craft room, which I am in the process of cleaning for the billionth time!  Brad is from Basic Grey.
Other challenges entered are:
CREATIVE CARD CREW - autumn/fall
ABC CHALLENGE - D is for distressing
COOKING IT UP WITH KATIE - embossing, autumn, fancy fold
TUESDAY THROWDOWN - distressing (for OWH)

Awesome looking card Audrey, love the beautiful fall colors. I love cards that fold in different ways. I've never tried making a gate fold card but its on my to-do list. My favorite folding card is the tri-shutter card,
