Bruk Puncher at My Besties Norge

Hi Crafters!
The new challenge at
My Besties Norge 
Bruk Puncher
(Use Punches)
In the picture above you can see the punches I used on the front of my card

 For this challenge I wanted to make something a little different, and that "different" turned out as a pink christmascard.
Everything on the card (well, except the rhinestones) are in different pinktones, even the poinsettias - and yes, I´ve seen pink poinsettias in real!
The image on the card is from Sherri Baldy. You can find it in the Etsy Store as Img 909
Isn´t it cuuute!
It´s coloured with ProMarkers. I think I used most of the pinkshades on it. On the furry details on her clothes and hat I used a couple of brownshades (Cocoa and Tan, I think it was) in a kind of "dotty" motion, and lots of blender. Then coloured and blended lightly over again, and think I got it quite "furrylooking"(?)
Is this gatefolding? I sometimes get a little mixed up in the names of the foldingtechniques, but from the pictures I guess you can see how it´s folded, and how it works…
Between the paperlayers on the imagepanel and on the rightside foldingpanel I´ve put a little magnet, to keep the card closed.

Enough talk; Here´s the card I made to inspire you to join our Punch-Challenge:

Here´s the front folded out:

The inside(s)
The circlepanel in the middle is made using a cornerpunch from Martha Stewart
yes - it´s possible to make circles with cornerpunches :D)
