Gatefold Butterflies and Fairies

 I  have today made a gate fold card.I covered the front using a Dovecraft paper from a pack of 6x6 called Fantasy. On this first picture I left the background paper as the main feature adding a flower and some gem accents to the flower middle. I used the Tim Holtz edgeabilities butterfly die and distressed them with a distress ink. I added gems for accents on the butterflies. I attached a fairy doodles sentiment with 2 pastel brads and used my cuttlebug to cut some flowers using a Lea'bilities die which I inked and also used brads to attach the flowers.

The inside of the card I again used the fantasy papers and another birthday verse from fairy doodles, adding a small flower and 2 butterflies punched using my xcut butterfly punch.

The finished card I am very pleased with - I did find photographing it quite a challenge!
