Butterfly challenge -full house!

I was planning from the outset to have a go at the Dutch Fold card for the current Butterfly Challenge - a fold I've seen around a fair bit recently yet never used myself. I hadn't quite decided what materials to use, though, and was rummaging through my patterned papers for inspiration when I  found a diamond patterned paper in all three of the challenge colours. So how could I possibly *not* go for the full house with a digital image too? Especially as my snippets box already contained a butterfly digi that I'd been sent and printed out when I was guest designer for a now-defunct challenge some time ago.

I added another paper from the set for the inner panel and the outsides of the two flaps,  and more of the diamond paper inside the flaps. A panel for the sender to write on is added to the inside using the same two dies as I've used for the image and mat. 

I am also sharing this with Make my Monday - Diamonds

How could you not indeed!! Love the papers and how you have made the design your own. Great to see you have used all seven elements. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
