Totally Papercrafts Challenge - More than one fold

Morning everyone... is it Friday already?
Then it must be time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts.
This week the challenge has been set by the lovely Joey and is

"MORE THAN ONE FOLD"

Our sponsor this week is Karen's Doodles and she is offering a lucky winner 3 digi images from her store. She also has a gorgeous new FREE image on her site HERE if you would like to go and get it !

Here is my design - it's a simple gatefold card.
To keep the gatefold closed, I added a heart to each side of the card, with one heart tucking in behind the other. It wasn't a complete success though, so I ended up putting some ribbon on the bottom too.
This card is for my 25th Wedding Anniversary, which is next month.. where does the time go???
I already had the image chosen and it was ready and waiting to be used, and I do like the way this fold makes the little hedgies kiss in the middle. Sweet!
The hedgies are Penny Black, Long Kiss, coloured with Copics, with stickles glitter added to the balloon and rose.
DP, Ribbon and Bloom are all from the Papermania Mono Capsule Collection.
It's hard to see, but I also added some glitter to the hearts.
I used more of the DP inside the card and added a Rub on quote from DCWV, Love Quotes.
The heart charm is from the Hobby House.
Sorry the pics aren't better... I knew exactly what I wanted to focus on, but the camera had a mind of it's own!! This is one of those cards that really does look better in real life... honest!
