Flip-flop butterfly

I think this fold is called a flip-flop card, and it probably has other names as well. One of the stamping groups I'm on has this fold as a theme this month, and I watched a video on how to do it, then totally did my own thing. 
The main butterfly dies are from Simon Says, and they are cut from some gorgeous paper I have been holding onto forever. (No reason to keep it, might as well share the beauty, right?) There are also butterfly silhouettes(from Stamplorations)  stamped on both sides of the front panel in Versamark.
The inside sentiment reads "The time to be happy is now, the place to be happy is here" and I'm pretty sure it's from SU.
The paper on the inside is actually cut from a grocery store flyer because it looks like some sort of cool technique and adds some real interest to that part of the card.

This card is for these challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #85 -- indigo and sihlouette
Catch the Bug -- theme: chin up buttercup (sentiment)
Cuttlebug Mania -- Anything Goes
HLS Dies -- Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- Stamp it (no digis)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- Stamp it (no digis)
Word Art Wednesday #298 -- anything goes
