B for Bluebells

Hi all I made this card that I hope will be eligible for the following challenges:
For my card I have used a sort of gatefold but cut the top off half way down so it gives the impression of a cross over card, I have used both SU card stock and papers, I went for the Bluebell colour theme as my garden will be full of them soon.  The outside of the card I have added flower, lace, butterflies, pearls and ribbon, this is my first try at a sort of shabby chic look but not sure that it turned out as good as what I have seen on other blogs. 
On the inside is a stamp that I recently bought from Funky Kits she is from the Cherry Pip family it is a stamp and not a digi.  I coloured her with Copics I added a die cut, sentiment and quite a few gold gems.  The ribbon, gems and pearls I bought from Mei Flowers.
Thank you so much for visiting I will see you soon, hugs to all.
