CAGI ~ Gate Fold Card with ADFD

Hello There!

Hope that you've been having a great weekend....We've had a bit of snow but nothing to actually have to snow plow (thank goodness)  I'm sure everyone is ready for Spring to come around!

We have a fun challenge over at Come And Get It Challenges , with Julie as our hostess, she asked us to use "Domestic Animals" so any dogs, cats, fish, get the idea.  
So come join us for the Challenge

I've used ADFD image "A lap full of Kittens" framed with Ribbon on a Die cut, then using a heart punch for edging 
Just love the Frantage embossing that I used to edge my card, it makes wonderful sprinkles and dots 

Here's the inside with the open fold of the Gate
