Gate Fold With Extra Element

I was out of State for a week and when I came back, the Azaleas, Lilac, and fruit trees were all in bloom.  I love them all.  I need to take pics today of all the glorious colors.

Can you believe how creative some people are?  I am always in awe and wonder at how some can come up with new techniques and card styles.  While I was looking for a unique card, I ran across this interactive card.  It took a bit of time in the construction but what a fun unique card!
I am showing three pics to give you an idea of how this gate card looks closed, partially open and fully open.

Besides the Power Poppy Azaleas set, I used Our Daily Bread Crocheted Circle stamp and die, and a MFT Stax circle die.
Even though it does not show the dimension in the photo, I added a second layer of three flowers on the front in order to pop them up a bit.
The sentiments inside are Whimsy and ?
I love how this turned out.  It takes the gate fold and adds another interesting element.
