Joy Fold Card

I've been adding many card designs to my Pinterest boards recently and discovered some interesting ones using a Joy Fold.  I hadn't tried this before so getting the new Papercrafter magazine with its wonderful kit gave me an opportunity to try it.
I won't go into too much detail about how it's made as there's so many tutorials already and it's really quite simple.  I used these instructions from Split Coast Stampers, but you can make it in many different sizes. 
First I cut the main two pieces of card and scored, then glued patterned paper to the back flap of the largest piece.  I then glued the smaller piece of card to the centre of the patterned paper, with the fold on the right.
I cut a smaller piece of lighter-coloured card to fit the front of the small flap and rubbed a transfer in the bottom right corner, finishing off with the chipboard embellishments and sequin flowers.
I glued patterned paper to the other flaps where needed and added a sentiment and gems inside the smaller flap.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to view my creations.
I am trying to reply to your kind comments as I do read all of them, however I often publish from my phone and then get distracted by my children or life in general!
I am always trying to improve my colouring and cardmaking skills and constructive feedback is always welcomed.
