Anyone for Anya Diamond fold card

The challenge at Anyone for Anya? is 'Don't be square' so I made a Diamond fold card. There's a tutorial on YouTube here

The image is Amelia and for once I picked the papers BEFORE colouring her! She's off to Devon, where my sister has a summer job working at Lee Abbey.

The Diamond fold is easy - though it needs careful measuring, especially as A4 card is 298cm long, which makes dividing by thirds a little tricky. However, I still know how to do Long Division after hem-hem years since maths classes - and the joy of cards is that mistakes can be covered by pretty paper!

Thanks for looking!

Recipe: Amelia from 'Happy Day' by The Greeting Farm stamped in Stazon on watercolour paper
Coloured with Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade
Orange Stickles on every star!
Papers are the gorgeous MME 'Bloom and Grow'
Flowers are handmade and the yellow ones are by Kaisercraft. The stamp for the green fronds has no details on it, I'm afraid, but the paper I used was an OLD ENVELOPE!!
Art Glitter around the Diamond shape.
