Your Love Gives My Heart Wings

So I found a fantastic folding tutorial on StampARTic called a Napkin Folded Card. I just had to try it.  (You can find the tutorial here, it's very simple and fun!)  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This is the card completely closed:


This is the card half open:


And this is the card completely open:


Here's a close-up of the inside of the card.  The sketch was created by Sweet Sketch Wednesdays.


The stamp is a Meljens Design stamp, colored with colored pencils and stickles.  I hope you all like it!
