LeeAnn Greff's tri-fold flip flap card

This week's workshop wow challenge was to make LeeAnn Greff's tri-fold flip flap card. Genius, LeeAnn!
I started with wanting to use Elegant Eggplant because I just got Eggplant rickrack that I wanted to use on the card. I went to my SU Color Combo sheet and found Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. I have to say that Crushed Curry is quickly replacing Rich Razzleberry as my favorite In Color. Shocking, isn't it?
After I stamped the flower image from Inspired by Nature, I thought the color on the petals was a bit uneven, so I used my aquapainter to smooth it out a bit. I like the way it turned out!

Here is the inside of the card. A demo who made one of these on SCS noted that the fold-down flap gives lots of room for signing the card when it's from a group. Great idea!
Supplies: Stamps: Inspired by Nature; Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry; Ink: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry; Accessories: Clips assortment, Orchard ribbon originals, Old Olive narrow grosgrain ribbon
Happy stamping!
