Joy Fold Card - Confirmation Card No 2

I'm having a bit of a struggle making my confirmation cards for boys, but when I discovered the Joy Fold card tutorial over at Come and Get It Challenges, I though it would be a great idea to make one having a gift money pocket on the inside.
This card is HEAVY! I've put plenty of layers on this card, mixing blue and white printed papers from Maja Design together with blue, white and kraft card stock.
I chose to add a blue ribbon to better be able to close the card. I've machine stitched with blue and white thread, I've heat embossed the sentiments using white embossing powder and I've decorated the card with cut out butterflies, a die cut clock (Marianne die) and some leaves (Spellbinders die).
The paper is dark blue, it comes out lighter in the picture than in real life.
This card is for these challenges:
1) Come and Get It Challenges - Joy Fold Card
2) ALBC - Kraft It
3) Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes
4) Crafty Sentiments - The Letter B (Lots of blue and butterflies)
5) Love to Create - Punches and/or Dies
6) LEJ Designs - #51 Anything Goes
7) Artistic Inspirations - Lots of Layers
8) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

That is a beautifully constructed and balanced card Pia. I love how you've made it as wonderful inside as it is on the outside. Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner this time, hugs Jenny x

Thanks for your great words Pia...we do have a good health system here and dad is in a specialised part of a huge hospital he is medically stable so able to leave. The hospital is helping us get the special bed etc that we need instead of having to pay a lot of money renting the goods... and we want him home...he will be much more peaceful here and he actually took a few steps with us today...he is a darling...they call him Pope Wally at the hospital as he looks like the Pope with his white gown and Rosary cute...x

love your card and the way you used this favourite die of the clock...I would not have thought to do this..very admirable....great
