A fancy fold card

Good evening friends,
The weekend has arrived and with it very cold weather forecast for the weekend. I suppose it is winter, so we shouldn't complain...but we will anyway.
The card I am showing today was made as a sample for a workshop I did a few weeks ago. It is another version of a shutter card....there are quite a few different ones out there.

I decided to use no patterned paper, but did some embossing on the inside.
The front was decorated with mainly Marianne Design dies..doily, flowers and leaves. The vintage picture is also from Marianne Design, cut out with a heart die. Added lace, metal corners, and pearls
On the inside, I used a Joy flourish die, Marianne Design corner and heart dies and added little tags cut with the Cricut.
The sentiment is a local stamp, which I stamped and then tore around the edge.Finished off with a bow and a pin and pearls.
Everybody loved it, although the folds certainly were a challenge for some.

I am entering some challenges:
Just Add Ink..Pearls
CCEE Stampers..Creat a card with a vintage feel
Papertake Weekly..Anything goes
Try it on Tuesday..Anything goes

That's my story for today. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will be back soon..take care and have fun.
