Pink Chocolate Kiwi Butterfly !

Hi Peeps, I made this card for the color challenge CC208 on SCS.
The colors were Pink ,Chocolate, Kiwi.I didn't have the exact colors
so went with the closest I had.
I saw a card made similar to this awhile back at a scrap store, with the window
cutout and the folds.I have wanted to try it, so today I decided to step outside
the box.
I made this from memory and its not exact , I put my spin on it.
I thought my new Inkadinkado stamp set , I recently bought, would be perfect for this card..I so love this butterfly.
But I am pleased with how it turned out and will try this again.
I am uploading several pics so you can see how it was put together.

I used BG Infuse papers.I cut 2 cards 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.
Placed one inside the other , cut and scored.I cut the window and the scallop border with my long nesties.I did the folds with my score-it.I stamped
the butterfly, colored it with Copics, cut it out and glued it so it
would pop off the card and thru the window.I outlined the butterfly
with a glitter pen.It is really glittery and doesn't show up so much in the pics.
I used two Inkadinkado stamps to create the look of the butterfly with the tail.
I added some pink & green rhinestones .
Stamps; Inkadinkado Butterfly, Verve verse
Paper; BG " Infuse"
Ink; Memento
Accessories; Offray ribbon, Long Nesties,Copics markers, Mixture of rhinestones from $store,
Score-it,Glitter Gelly roll pen.
Thank you for visiting.I love hearing all your comments.
Have a wonderful day.
