Folded Pocket Gift Card - DSC#180

Hi Stampers,
Here is a look at this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#180 Color My World ChallengeI am always inspired by different types of card folding techniques, so this week's card was a fun challenge for me. A few months back, Dawn Olchefske had posted a Fold Back Card which inspired me to make my take on that fold for this week's card. This is my Folded Pocket Gift Card.  I wanted to use up my Field of FLowers DSP so can can make room for the new papers coming out soon.  I was low on a few of the suggested challenge colors, but was able to substitute colors that are very close in color and still stay within the spirit of the combo challenge.

As you can see in the photo below, you can use the little hidden inside folded area to stuff with a Gift Card or Dollar Bills if you choose.  

The finishing touch was to add the little pearl gem.
