Accordion Cards With Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

I love this Accordion fun fold card! I saw Sharon Armstrong (TX Stampin' Sharon) show how to make this card and thought it would be a great card to feature the beautiful Pansy Petals deisgner series paper. The retiring list comes out next week (yikes - already!), and I'm sure it'll be on it.

Here's the card I made tonight:

Don't you love the dsp? I love that it even has pansies and leaves on it that you can die cut or fussy cut to use on a card!

Here's another card with one of the Heart & Home doilies on the front.  I stamped a large pansy on it and added a pearl in the center:

The dark green twine on the front is from the Fan Baker's Twine pack.

Here's what the card looks like open. The original pattern called for one 2 3/4 x 2 3/4" square for the front of the 3 x 6" hinge (or little card), but I like to cut two of the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4" dsp and add one to the back side. You can see it here:

I used DSP on the inside of that card instead of Basic White card stock. Here's the front of that card:

And here's a pic of all three cards together.  Which one do you like best?
