Magnolia-licious and More DT - Shaped Cards

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge and it is a theme I love - shaped cards!  I have used the Sizzix Ornate Oval die to create my tri-fold card.  Trying to get a photo of it when it is open was a bit of a nightmare though!  The gorgeous paper was a gift from my sweet friend Louise and is by Magnolia.
On the front of the card I have used a Hero Arts stamp in the centre of the frame and added some glimmer mist to create blotches for an aged look.  The birdcage is from my stash and I have painted it with picket fence crackle paint.
I have used the Orchid Doohickey to make the white orchids.  The gorgeous pink flower was also a gift and the rest of the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.
The pearl bead trim is also from The Ribbon Girl and the ribbon on top of the birdcage is from my stash.

For the centre panel I used some of the gorgeous Magnolia paper and topped it with a Spellbinder butterfly.
I used the same stamp for the final centre panel as on the first before adding my sweet Tilda as a Star, coloured with copics.
The above photo shows the card flattened out but it doesn't stand up unsupported like this.
On the back of the last panel I added some more of the Magnolia paper and the sentiment, leaving the other two panels free for a hand written message.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Magnolia-licious!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning shaped cards.
