Gatefold birthday card

A gatefold card that I made a while ago for a friend's birthday. The photos aren't good - the papers were pastel and were from a magazine freebie. I used two Penny Black stamps - hang on hedge and butterfly edge, colouring with spectrum noir pens for the hedgie image and inking colour when stamping the butterflies. As the paper was pastel I was able to stamp directly. The pearl swirls were added.

Inside - Birthday greeting printed before putting the paper in:

Inside opened - added the other sentiments with clear tape from dymo letratag:
