Verve Visual #2 Gate Fold

Here is my second card for the Verve Visual guest designer contest. This card I made it a gate fold card, its where the card opens in the center {like a gate} intead of the side or bottom.
My friend Chris recently used the grass hopper {Papertreyink} on a swap she made, which inspired me to make this card. I knew I wanted to use BasicGrey's Two Scoops dp, it has a lot of greens in the line, so the grasshopper went perfect with the paper. I generation stamped the grasshopper, which made the card flow so much better. The peachy/groovy guava looking paper is by Bazzill & I have know idea what the "real" color name is. The images are from Papertrey Ink stamp sets Green Thumb and Borders & Corners.
I am really happy with how this card turned out, it has clean lines...which probably is my favorite style of card to make.
Materials used:
Basic Grey Two Scoops designer paper, Whisper white cardstock {SU} Bazzil textured paper, Wild Wasabi stamp pad, Cameo Coral stamp pad, Stazon Black, Score-pal, Primas, MM silver brads
