Dreamweaver Fun Fold Card

I have been playing with fun folds, new stamps and Brusho Crystal Colours for monthly classes that are starting again in my home soon. I recently purchased this Dreamweaver stamp from Fun Stampers Journey and knew I wanted to feature it on a card. I heat embossed it with detail black ink on a piece of watercolor paper, then sprinkled orange, violet and blue Brushos and spritzed with water resulting in a beautiful front piece. The fold is created by scoring an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" aqua blue piece at 2,3,5 and 6". This is what the card looks like from the top, showing the folds:

And here is a look with the card spread out so you can see all the details:
The side panels are cut with a Memory Box die called Lucienne Tile. I cut a small feather with an Impression Obsession die, sponged the edges and stamped "Take Care" from Flourishes.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp and Jo's Scrap Shack, and the embossing challenge at Virginia's View.
