Gates of Gorgeousness-thanks to Bubbly Funk!!

I would like to thank Caroline at Bubbly Funk once again for giving me the wonderful opportunity to work with these divine papers.....I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be able to get my hands on these Prima papers so quickly if ever!!

I HAD to cut the gates open there was just NO WAY I couldn't!! I used my craft knife to carefully cut out all the bits in between the gates so that you could see through them and then I strengthened it with acetate as it was so fragile.
I'm still slapping that Opal Dust on everything!!
The gates open to reveal the word love and the flowers tucked into the corners.

To visit Bubbly Scrumptious and see how I made this layout click HERE. Kits can still be ordered from Bubbly Funk HERE.

With floodgates of love
