A Tilda Birthday Card

I finally inked up my Japanese Tilda. There are still quite a few Magnolia stamps that I need to ink up. Hopefully soon. I colored her with my Copics, and the paper is from SU and a DCWV paper stack. I embossed the bottom layer with the CB Swiss Dots folder (my fav!), punched the edge with a super old Fiskars border punch, and stamped the top layer with a foam cherry blossom stamp with Brilliance shimmer dye ink. Got the butterfly at the stamp expo, the cherry blossoms from my GF Jenny, and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. I couldn't figure out how to keep the card closed for the picture, so I used small clips at the top and the bottom

How the card is folded ...

The card opened all the way ...
