Who's at the Gate?

The Character Cafe Challenge this week is to make a gate fold card. There are some on line video instructions available. I, of course, accidently picked the more involved gate fold card. But it was fun.

Quinn the duck was my first attempt. I think it came out okay. I used double sided heavy weight designer paper. The blue would be easier to write a note on , so it got the priority. The backside is the orange which I used to mat the image.

 This nutty rascal is so cute. I used him for another challenge earlier in the week (on regular rectangular card). I like the way this one came out.
While not as colorful, the shades of brown are rich and appropriate for
this guy.
