Latest tri-fold

I wish I could figure out why these don't always load in the order I want them too? Anyway this is a card I created for my dear friend Karen. What a wonderful woman! It took me a couple of days because I just couldn't decide what else to do with it. I started out with a piece of purple cardstock. Cut the face pieces from misc scrapbook paper. Used all Spellbinder dies. Stamped cover image with Green Stazon and with Inkadinkado "Flower Sentiments". Inside phrase is from Stampin Up "Love Ya Bunches" and butterfly from Inkadinkado "Garden Words". Yes I like to mix it up a bit. Happy Birthday is also from a Stampin UP set, not sure which one, I just have the loose stamp. The little tulip on the bottom which I don't think I like there is also from the Garden Words set. The beads I had a ball with, not. The top is a pretty purple wrapped in wire I found at JoAnn Fabrics. They came on a strand and used more of them for the bookmard that is next. The light green one is just a misc I had in my stash. I have a whole big canvas tote with beading supplies in it but do you think I had 1 regular jump ring? NO! Lots of doubles but no plain old ordinary jump ring. Can't use the double cause I would surely rip the paper. So, had to take another trip to JoAnn's, which I never mind doing especially since they still have new items to put out. Found these oval shaped ones from Blue Moon. The only bad thing is if you don't stand the card just right, it is heavy on the bead side. Maybe I should have dangled one from the back side too? I think this card needs something more too, or maybe just something done differently?
