Fancy Folds

Good morning all, it's time for a brand new challenge over at 
Ohh La La Creations Challenge Blog!
The theme this time is Fancy Folds.
Here's my card!

I used this pyramid decoupage & papers from the gorgeous Shawn Jenkins
CD, available in the shop here.
I used the sketch 
from Completely Christmas as the inspiration for my layout.
I rotated it 90 degrees.
I opted to make a gatefold card, I just love them!
I missed out a couple of layers of the decoupage as I didn't want too much height.

I bought the ribbon Silk Crush ribbon from a sale on Facebook,
isn't it lush? I have it in several colours!
I also added a few littl pearls from my stash.
The pyramge looks a bit wonky in the photo, but it's just camera angles.

You can see the layers in this view!
I also added a little panel with a decorative border inside.
A very quick, simple yet impressive card to make!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you like it!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Hobby Cuts - Fancy Folds
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes with patterned paper
