DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge # 82 - Fancy Folds

It's a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and this fortnight  the challenge  is 'Fancy Folds' , so no ordinary cards with just the usual one fold, we want to see multiple folds. I choose an easel card for mine!
The challenge will run Jan 21st - Feb. 22nd, 2013.   I'm so looking forward to seeing your creations so please head on over to Lexi's Creations for all the details and some awesome inspiration  from my most talented teamies!

I started out making a 'petal card' but I kept getting everything topsy turvey so ended up pulling most of it apart and using what was savable to make a fan shaped piece  which I attached to the front of the easel card. I left a gap at the top so I could  put a tag and/or gift certificate or money in it. Added the tag and a bow, and left it well enough alone!! The bottom portion of the easel was much easier. The beaded circle was another left over from the petal attempt, added a rose and a few embellishes and called it a day.. maybe some day I will try the petal card again, and then again maybe not:O)
