Bright and Cheery Gatefold Card

Every now and then I get to a card that utilizes several of my favorite card making tools.  This gate-fold card is one of those.  I actually cut the card base on my Silhouette Cameo.  The front panels are embossed on my Big Shot using a Cuttlebug  embossing folder.  The flowers were punched with a Picture Punch.  The inside of the card features some awesome Gina K paper and a couple of butterflies punched with my Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch.  A bit of organza ribbon adhered to the back and tied in the front keep the card closed.

This sketch from The Paper Players provided inspiration, although I did move the elements around a bit.

And here is the finished product.

And the inside.

 I am entering this card into the following challenges.
