3GJ Challenge #1 ~ Butterflies and Bows

3 Girl Jam - Butterflies and Bows
I am very excited to be entering into this challenge. So
here is my card.

I love this challenge and I love butterflies. For this  card I  have
used a 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" card. I opened it out and then scored each side mid
way and folded the scored sides in. I used a piece of my Citris Stack
DCWM paper for the front. Then I cute a Solid blue 4 x 4 square for the 
center and again used a piece of my Citris paper. I placed a  round
doily on top and cute my Large Sizzix Butterfly out of a scrap piece
paper from my stash,

As you can see this is a gate fold card. I have never
made this type of a card, but I must say,I love this style. 
For the center of my
butterfly I place a white silk flower topped with a white
bow. I used a little black bling swirl to add more texture to
this card. For my sentiment I used my Martha Stewart flower
punch and my Creative memories circle punch and layered 
the two.I used my sending smiles stamp to finish it off.
I took this side view to give you alittle better look at 
the layers of this card. and now for the inside.
I like to add a little something to the inside. I think
it ties it all together. Here's one more look at my
finished card.
