Fancy fold card

I made a fun fancy fold card this week. 

The example that I saw online was from my stamping friend Dawn's blog. 
Her card closed with a ribbon. I decided to make a belly band with a butterfly for my card. 
The butterfly on my belly band and also on the inside of the card is from

I added three little rhinestones to the body of the butterfly. 

If you look at the top panel on the front of the card you can see that it was die cut. I used 
 I used those dies to cut the inside of the card as well. 

I used scraps and the die cut butterfly along with used tea bags and pink floral decor.

Last page of the accordian part of the card has die cut from 

To make sure the sentiment stands out I traced around it with a white gel pen. 

I am planning on making a few more of this style and making Valentines.
