We had two entries last week and both cards were fabulous!  Thanks so much ladies!  I hope you will accept this week's challenge and share your Gate Fold Card with us!  Remember using your circle, oval or square die to creature your closer satisfies the requirement to use one die.  The idea is to get you into the habit of thinking about how dies can enhance your project!  Good Luck!

Nice embossing and the blue and white palette is very pretty!  This is a very well balance design!
