open sesame

Cards are not my forte and I have to thank Mansi (DCAM Challenges) for their current challenge....
This is a Flip and Fold card, using double sided PP from K&Co, with some pockets and i thoroughly enjoyed making this one!

All the pockets have a "Thank you " tag and the sentiment has been stamped on...guess what???
Playing cards...yes that's the recycled ingredient too!

 The card when opened...
The pockets...
The central "poppy Bouquet"...

The different tags...One l'le tag has a shining key made out of glitter foam...

The blooms are all made with Cheery Lynn die, Small Heart Cutie Fringe(B391) and laced with glitter dust in the edges. This is such a cute l"le flower and I wanted to have as many on the front card. The gliter border on the front panel is the negative of the cutie fringe bloom!
As you open the "door" of the card, you see the central focal point,which is the yellow burlap mat and the pocket which has a bouquet of poppies..peeeping out! When you pull out the bouquet there is a colorful tag which says "thank you  4 everything". The poppy stamp is from Hero Arts and have colored it with distress inks and outlined with glitter liners and then cut and arranged with cheery lynn olive branches(B147) and a yellow ribbon to form the "bouquet".
This is only my 3rd card so far and i really need to know from all of you..how it looks???
Thanks a lot for stopping by and am linking this to the following challenges...
Happy Crafting and re cycling!
