Life Is Beautiful - Crafty Creations Beautiful Insides

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at Crafty Creations we are asking everyone to create a card with beautiful insides.  I decided to make a gate-fold card. 

I first cut out pieces in green to go on the gate part and embossed them and layered that on top of a soft purple paper.  I wrapped a white shear ribbon and little bow around the outside.  I used my nestables and cut out a scalloped circle and regular circle and stuck them together on the outside right on the fold.  On the inside I used all the same papers but also this cute image from Meljen's Designs called Fru Fru Fairy Joy

I colored her with my Copics and added a lot of Stardust Stickles (if someone asked me to pick one blingy thing from rhinestones to glitter this is what I would choose - I love it!) to her wings flowers and a number of the other $1 Studio G stamps that I placed around the inside. 

I also added these metal butterfly embellishments.  Thanks everyone for stopping by and head on over to Crafty Creations and join in on the fun - Beautiful Insides.
