Karen Burniston's Oval Landscape Accordion Card, with Crate Paper's Confetti Collection Flowers

I haven't had much time for crafting lately, but I've finished the course now which I've been on all this year (I passed it, and am now an On-Call Fire Fighter!), so have finally had chance to play!
I used Karen Burniston's lovely new Oval Landscape Accordion die set for the four panels, and for the oval layer.

Talking of Karen, I finally got to meet her last month at the Stitches show at the NEC, England!!
 Donna Wright (of Old Red Shed) and I went down for the weekend, and met up with Karen, as well as Caz Counsell, from Karen's Design Team. We had a brilliant weekend and it was so nice to finally meet good friends! 

 Back to the card... I re-cut each of the panels in patterned papers, and used them to decorate the frames. The papers are from My Mind's Eye's 'The Sky's the Limit' 12x12 Collection, and from Stampin' Up.
I used dies from Crate Paper's Confetti Collection 'Flowers' Die Set, for the layered flowers and leaves.

The 'thanks' die is from Mama Elephant.

I attached the flower which overlaps the join between the last two panels, just onto the oval of the last panel, so that when the card is closed the flower can float outwards, and not impede the closing.

I love these flowers!
