swinging z fold

Today my niece is 30 and it has always been a challenge to create cards for her, she is a card maker and likes everything so I try to make a special construction one. The other day I saw this tutorial from Beate on Splitcoast stampers. Beate does great tutorials written and also with a video for the visual learner, you can find the tutorial here.
I start with the die cut shape in very vanilla and sponged the edges with antique linen for an aged look, I also sponged the flowers to match. I used a stamp positioner to place my sentiment. Something I don't use very often I usually just eyeball it.
The left side of this designer paper is raised felt giving it a great texture and I just dressed up the right side with the mft die and bling.

Supplies: Grace Taylor design clear stamps, Autumn leaves - elegant flourishes, stampin up - Whimsical words.
Paper: Black and very vanilla card, DP - DCWV La Creme stack
Other: assorted flowers, brads, nestabilities labels 4 die, MFT - Faux crochet die,Tim Holtz - antique linen ink, sponging block, brillance - starlite black and pearlescent beige ink, rhinestones, stamp positioner
Thanks for looking
