Butterfly Folding Card - Green

I made this card for Allsorts Challenge Blog, Challenge # 85!
The theme for this challenge is Fancy Fold cards, so I tried my first folding card!  (not sure if it qualifies as "fancy" folding, but here it is anyway!):
This is the front.  I used a really pretty scrapbook paper with sparkly patterns on it.  The butterfly is sparkly too, but it doesn't show well on this photo.

I made a b'day card - I stamped a sentiment on white card stock with a matching green ink (it's totally a coincidence that I happened to have matching paper, ink and pearls...cool!).  I inked the edges with purple ink, and glued on green pearls, and 3D mounted it onto the card.
I added cream pearl to the card corners:
Here's what the card looks like open:

I cut 3 pieces from the same scrapbook paper and glued it onto 3 sides of the card - the front, the first inside "page" and the last inside "page".  The centre I left blank so that one can write a message there.  I just stamped some butterflies along the top and bottom in green and purple inks:
And that's it! :D

This is so pretty and yet so dignified and elegant. Love the folds and the butterflies look so lovely. The pearls look heavenly and so does the paper.

Thanks for your comments on my foil card... that was such a nice compliment for me. You made my day!

Hugs,

Monica
