Charlotte and Butterfly Gate Fold Card

I made this gate fold card using a beautiful gold ribbon to keep it closed. I love this sweet little girl called Charlotte and Butterfly  from Milk Coffee Stamps and I really wanted her in a red dress and to have a white collar and white socks with white lace trim, so cute!!!! I enjoyed my colour scheme of gold for our challenge this week and the gold cardstock was like a mirror I can nearly see myself taking the photo,too funny! The embossed butterflies added to the theme and added a touch of class. I watched a you tube tube tutorial to try to improve my hair colouring and swapped a few colours around and used what I had to try to create golden hair. It is my challenge to myself  this year to improve my colouring in. I really enjoyed colouring in her dress and then adding spots with my white gel pen, that was fun! On the inside, I wanted it to look like a flower so I added a flourish under the die cuts and I think it looks clever. Then I  added another butterfly so the inside and outside theme was carried through.  Annie March 2012 002
