Belated birthday present.....

.....from a dear friend.
Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. Here's some hugs for those who want or need them {{{{{hugs}}}}}
Not a card for today, but a wonderful gift. 


I loved the concertina wallet so much that I decided to have a go myself. I measured all the bits on this one and here is the result!



Everything used in the making of it was from stash.
The red card was a 12x12 sheet from who knows where!
The striped card is MME from a 12x12 pad I bought about 4 years ago in a sale at PDA.
Flower and leaves made using McGill and Xcut punches.
Fastener from small round punches. I am quite pleased with the result :o)
