Just Magnolia Week 112 - Butterflies

Hi girls. Thank you so much for calling in to see my blog. It's great to have you here and I hope you like what is on offer today. The weather has been mixed here in Kinross and many of the bedding plants we put in this year have been destroyed by wind and rain.
My card today was made for the current Just Magnolia challenge where the theme was "Butterflies". The card is a gate fold card. The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Butterfly" and I have coloured her using my Copics. The design paper is 12" Abbey Road Vine by Bo Bunny. I have also used turquoise Bazzil as a mount. I have used flowers by Wild Orchid and some handmade ones as embellishments.

This is a close up of Tilda

The inside panel of the card has a the striped reverse side of the Bo Bunny paper as a backing  and the white message panel has corners cut with a Martha Stewart corner punch. The inside of the gates is an unknown greeen and white paper. I have added some small flowers and a  butterfly cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

Finally a view of the card with one of the gates fully open and one almost closed.
I hope you like this card and that you might have a minute to leave a comment telling me what you think of it. I really value your opinions and views.
I hope you have a great day crafting and that above all you stay safe and healthy.
