A Variation Gatefold Christmas Card

Its been days since I posted...unusual for me to go several days without a post, but we had quite a 4th of July week here at our house. We had family from out of town, our 2 yr old grandaughter visiting, a BIG shindig on the 4th with tons of our friends, we have a litter of puppies for sale right now, and the list goes on and on...
... anyway, somewhere in the chaos, my charger for my camera has disappeared, so I only got a few pic's of this card and some are not all that good. I will be updating them asap! However, I wanted to get this card listed for some challenges this week before it was to late.
I used an image I just won this week from Crissy's Images
Flowers are from WOC
Recollection pinecones, berries and gold leaves
Gemstone and Tim Holtz Cardstock
Paper Pizzaz and DCWV Papers
Inkadinkado Rubber stamp sentiments
Metal corner embellies also from WOC

I made a variation gatefold with a front panel that also opens....

...inside is the first sentiment ...

...then you open the gatefold to show the
personal sentiment area
with the stamped "BELIEVE" sentiments on the
patterned inside panels.

I will be entering the following challenges:
