Mothers Day double gatefold card with belli band for challenges

Here I am, hope you all had a great week so far. I thought I would try something a little different, something I hadn't tried before. Go the extra mile. Rina on her blog Scrapbook Faschinista inspired me, love her stuff, no where near as lovely as her gorgeous creations (YET)...I really like this style card but it chews up a fair bit of card stock. It's basically 3 cards in one.
Two square cards overlapping in the center to create a pocket for the large tag and then the band. I really do like the pull out tab, you can use it for journeling or put some pics on it, both sides even.
So it is definitely a card for that special someone.
 I am going to try to make one for a baby and a wedding shortly.
I used papers ( kaisercraft I think ), cardstock and flowers from my stash, the images were freebies from the graphics fairy a while ago, I have had the girl image for a while now.  The butterfly border is a Martha Stewart border punch.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
