My Bestie Interlocking Gatefold Card - Mother's Day

I made this card for a Mother's Day card but as you can see from the inside I haven't decided what to say yet :)

This is an interlocking gatefold card, and if you missed my first post on this style card I will post the link to my YouTube video tutorial so you can see how to make it, and also the link to my video about the making of this card.

Interlocking Gatefold Card

I used digital paper from Sherri Baldy's My Besties Designer Grunge Digital Paper Pack which is just gorgeous!!!  I also used Sherri Baldy's My Besties IMG875 and colored it with Inktense watercolor pencils.  I used Sizzix Scallop Oval dies to create the interlocoking parts.   For the inside I used a Martha Stewart lace punch.  Oh and the blue on the outer scallop oval and on the "lace" inside was done by inking with Distress Ink "Broken China" so that it would match the blue in the floral paper.  I also added some flowers and a butterfly to the outer scallop ring.
