Dont try new ideas when you've had a drink............

Well - now here's a story - I found a tutorial on You Tube for this card and wow - I love it - however this is not what I was saying on my 3rd attempt! Completely made a total and utter mess!

I will use it again - now I have the knack!
Heres the inside of the card when folded out and I decorated the back also

I have entered this card into two challenges:

Stamping for the weekend no.11 - Days gone by
Polkadoodles - to make a card with at least 2 folds!

Papers used - Papermania Boutique by Jesse Edwards
Stamps used - flower and butterfly set of foam stamps from QVC, sentiment from Elusive Images at Graphicus
Pearls are from Kanban

Until later!
