Frenchie Friends Michelle and Jo Jo from Crafts and Me

Hello and happy day to everyone.  I am having a few days off work and should be doing all the household and gardening chores which do not usually get done.  What am I doing - you guessed in - crafting.  So naughty!!!!

My card for today feature the wonderful Frenchie Friends Michelle and Jojo by Hannah Lynn for Crafts n Me and they are lovely.  I have again made a 6 x 6  gate fold card with a built in double front stepper and I am in love with this type of card at present.  It is so easy to make.

List of Materials used to make this card:

2 x 12 x 12 sheets or card for backing and toppers.
A Walk in the Garden Design Papers which are glittered and are lovely.
Wonderful image - link above - coloured using mostly Promarker Pens and with slight white gel highlights.
Lovely on the edge die cuts to make layers for steppers cut from white glitter card and stained with pink and green inks.
Various butterfly images and Eiffel Tower from Kaisercraft.
New Eiffel Tower die cut.
Ribbon, pearls and Prima flowers from my stash.

A closer view of this so sweet image.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Butterflies and Bows

I have made a decorated band for the outside of the card decorated with label for personal greeting and more lovely Prima Flowers and matching glitter papers.  It ages since I made a banded card  My last was Christmas I think.  This really gives a lovely finish to a gate fold card.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post and have a look at my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
