GDT for my time to craft-more than one fold no easel cards

hello its challenge time again over at my time to craft and this week the theme is- more than one fold (easel cards not allowed)

i hope you can pop over and take a peek what the DT have made :)

here is the criss cross card i made...

were i work we have 3 agency working with us and sometimes it can be hard to communicate as one is one Russian and the other two are Latvian but we manage and actually get along nicely.

Valentina the Russian lady told me that her daughter ha just given birth so i asked the Latvian lady if she could get me a pic of baby viktorija.

so having the pic i decided to make this:
the card folds from both sides but is glued at the ends so it does not open.
i covered the card with backing paper adding the image that i coloured using promarkers and the flower embellishment,

to inside of the card pulls out to reveal a board.
i used the same backing paper and the same image.
i then added the pic of baby viktorija.with here name down the side in silver peel off's 
i then wrote her DOB, WEIGH and TIME on a piece of yellow card and place it under her pic

Valentina loved it and said her daughter and rest of the family love it :) 

i hope you like it
