My fun fold card inspired by Patty

She has very generously provided tutorials and videos on how to do this fold here.  I did change the dimensions just a little to suit the A4 cardstock.

This is my version.  I used Bermuda Bay and Black cardstock to make the fun fold card and decorated it with a selection of papers from the Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  I cut circles from Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss cardstock and topped them with a Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay and Delightful Dijon flower. The flowers were all cut with the gorgeous Botanical Builder Framelit dies.

I stamped a greeting from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and cut it out with one of the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.

I removed a few sequins from the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and used them to highlight the large flower and the greeting.

Then I added a few Rhinestone Jewels for a bit of sparkle. 

The inside of the card hides a little surprise.  There's another flower made with the Botanical Builder dies and some matching flowers stamped with the Botanical Blooms Stamp set.  

The greeting is from Happy Birthday, Everyone.
