Gate fold butterfly card

I tried something new with this card.  There was a challenge on the Scrapper's Delight site for creating a card that was NOT a square or rectangle.  So here's mine :)  It is the card I made for my daughter's 11th birthday (boy am I getting old).  It was really hard to photograph, but it is sized to fit in an A2 envelope.  If I had to do it over, I'd do it bigger for sure.  This butterfly was the one from the Create a critter cricut cartridge and the stamps inside are from Fiskars.  The paper is all DCWV.  I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder on the inside of the wings and also decided to add some stickles and white stitching.  The ribbon was not what I had intended to use by my bigger hole punch broke, I only had the tiny one so I just used a tiny ribbon.  I also made her a coordinating envelope to go with it.  The wings are actually super sparkly even though you can't tell in the picture :)
