My first joy fold card !!!

Hi all
 Here is my first ever joy fold card , i was inspired by the  joy fold card challenge and DT projects at  Marks Finest Papers...I really enjoyed making a different fold for a change and i am sure it won't be my last.........I have used the craftwork card papers and sentiment [on the front] ....The stamped image is from fizzy moon
 The STUNNING  heart shaped ribbon  and gems are from meiflower crafts..
The card  base was cut using grand nesties,the flowers are from mulberry crafts.
The beautiful die cut heart was a free bee from dies to die for when i placed and order so thanks guys for that.....it is lovely
.The pins are handmade by me and my tutorial for making them is here.
The card stays closed by tucking the front flap under the sentiment in the left corner[see final pic]
