Inkspirations Challenge #78 - Flip Flop - Fast & Fabulous!

Welcome to another Inkspirations Challenge.  This week Keesh has these gorgeous colours for you to work with:-

I have made a Flip Flop (or Swing) card with this palette:- 

These cards are really quite simple to make, but have a fun factor when you open them & the "flip flop" action happens:-

Here are both the front & reverse sides of the card, fully open:-

I have used the SU Hostess set "Fast & Fabulous" which has sweet two step floral images.  I have combined this with the grungy splodges & script from the French Foliage set & added some pearl accents & sponging.

If you would like to try this style of card, I have added the measurements to the photo below:-
