Multi fold birthday card

Last night I did a card that was very long to do.... the type of card that I don't usually do at all which is multifolds.

I had a request to make a card for someone for their 50th birthday.  There was soooo much that I was supposed to put on it that I really couldn't do that with a simple card.  It would have been overwhelming.  So after much thought I figured that doing an accordeon style card would solve my issu.

I have lots of stamps from Kraftin Kimmie and the ones that I have used are some that had never been inked...yeah... pretty bad!  I've been using loooots of digis and forgetting about my other beautiful stamps! 

Here's the card closed.  I used Mandy on the top to represent staying zen and exercising.
Here's the look when opened.

From above.  The panels to write the message are back of the 2nd V.  This way when the card is closed the message doesn't show.  My signature to this card is part of the 1st V.

This is on the second panel.  And for those that don't read French it states relax.  This is Brigette taking a bath.  I added stickles for the bubbles
This is the 3rd pannel.  It's about escaping and traveling as you can guess from all the embellishments.  I had found for a card I made on Saturday the Eiffel tower as well as the plane and the suitcase.  I had already printed them smaller because obviously this card is not 11x17 like the one I made on Saturday.

I left the last panel without images because the ribbon passes right in the middle of it... so it would not have been as nice.

The paper is from Heidi grace design paper.  It's the front and the back.  All the images have been colored with copics.

It was fun in the end to do... but sooooo long!  This is why I did not post it yesterday night.

For the front of the card I followed this sketch:
