Beautiful BLUE ... Just for YOU!

Happy Thursday Afternoon Everyone!
I've been contemplating this card creation all day and FINALLY 
have it completed!  I saw a few challenge I thought would
work well together and wanted to play along ...
but before I could get crafty I had some errands to run ... drat!

Anyways it's finally completed and ready to share with you all ...
Hope you like it ...

The challenges I'm referring to are:
 Scor-pal:More than One Score Challenge #23 - Pink or Blue it's up to you" 

Butterfly Challenge #48 - Butterflies+ S is for Stamping and/or Sapphire

Accidents happen ... 
and sometimes that's 'A Good Thing'!
That's what happened today with this card. 

 When I was scoring to make my gate fold card, I scored improperly which meant I had to move my score line over an 1/8' on each side ... drat!  It still isn't meeting in the middle ...
Hence the addition of the beautiful Sue Wilson Gemini Dies - Phoenix (CED4401) border on the left side front cover.

So now that I have this 1/8" fold on either side, I decided to make a pocket on the inside where you could add a message panel (as I have done) or even add a gift card.

AND, the 'Just For You' panel was originally cut to decorate that pocket on the inside ... but I think I like it on the front better ... What do you think?

I must admit I REALLY LIKE how this card looks ... and I've used NO design paper!  Simply card stock, stamps/ink, die cuts and embellishments.
