Just Magnolia Challenge - Fancy Folds

Hi Girls, well I hope youve all enjoyed your Easter, and that youve at least had some nice weather over the weekend, the sun is out today so lets hope its the start of some better times to come. Ive got to thank so many people for the really lovely get well wishes that have been left in my comments, Im getting there and I thought Id better get a move on or this week is going to gone and nothing is going to be achieved.
Ive used this lovely new image from Magnolia, I was going to make a several shutter card but decided against it as the images werent all the same size and would look a bit of out proportion so I cheated and decided to just do this one instead, not sure what you call it, but its a sort of large gateleg card. Ive stamped this pair onto white card and coloured them with my copic pens, I was going to use my promarkers but decided against it this time, I must thank Angela for her stiring me to a good tutorial site, but havent as yet tried their good advice out. I also used a swirl stamp with a  pink inkpad around the edge.  Anyway Ive then cut the image into a square and mounted it onto two pieces of two shades of pink pearlescent card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" card, but with a staggered front, and on to this I have layered up pieces of pink card with two of the beautiful papers from the Papermania Cakes and Confettii papers, the first one is a pretty butterfly design, with the same colour scheme used all through, Ive used a paisley pattern for the smaller front on the right. The inside is a further pattern of roses. Onto the front I have stuck my mounted image in the centre at the top, and my sentiment beneath towards the right both just over lapping the opening.
I have created my flower bouquet from some of the flowers I bought from Cuddley Buddley recently, and even created some swirls down the narrow front with some clear gems.
