A Gate Fold Card

Hello once more , dear blogging friends . Welcome to my room . Hope that you are all happy and in good health . Just the last few days my mojo went AWOL. So I have been reading,  blog browsing and flipping through my stash of card examples [ swaps] . I ended up finding inspiration  on  Sandy's blog .
Sandy has many creations other than cards and her works of art are truly worth a visit . What inspired me was her  layering of many elements on a card.
So here I am sharing with you today's card .
Cardstock is from SU . The  Old Olive  panels for gate fold have been embossed with Provo Craft Folder for added texture . I have used  a wood flourish , a butterfly , leaves and flowers from my stash  for embellishing . Oh and added self adhesive pearls in corners .
For the inside I have used Old Olive layer with pale blue piece with deckled edges touched  with gold pen. It looked a little bare so I found a precut butterfly in my stash to add to bottom corner .
I am really happy with this card today so hoping you like it too.
Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne .
     Entering this into ...Moving Along With The Times  Challenge ..Make Your Dream Come True"
                  Because one of my many dreams is to be able to add more than a couple of elements / embellishments to a card .

Shirley this card is absolutely beautiful! Butterflies are my favorite because they remind me of my sister. She loved them! The florish and flowers are gorgeous. I have been busy setting up my google reader. Organizing it is a little tedious, but once I am finished it will be so much easier to keep track of the blogs I am following, and I won't miss any more post. I hope you had a fantastic weekend.:)
