This picture is of the front when it's totally closed. The flowers, ribbon and doilies are from my stash. The layered buttons are fairly new and I topped them with a gem.
This is the card with the front exposed so you can see Fluffles the cat. Isn't he cute? He's not too sure about his new friend, though. Of course, I would bet that the snail isn't too sure of him either.
This is a picture of the card partially open. I wasn't sure whether to post this picture or not, but if not, then you couldn't see the pretty detail on the other side of the petals that fold out. I basically just used the green paper for the last layer with the image of the girls and then on the outside of the petals. And then I used the burgundy paper for the inside of the petals and the final layer on the front of the card. Now you can see the card open. I used my nestibilities for the sentiment and then around the LOTV images. And I alternated dragonflies and butterflies on the petals, using both gems and pearls on them. The sentiment is one of these large sheet of sentiments you purchase, but I don't remember who they are by. I think I took as long deciding what I wanted to do with the card as I did putting everything together.
And here is a closeup of my image. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and I distressed the edges with a Colorbox ink.
