Katie Accordion with Spiral Circle Pull

I was inspired by Karen Burniston's July Designer Challenge video to merge an Accordion with another die.... we'll get to that once the card is opened.  I die cut 2 white and 1 yellow Kaite Accordions for the base.  I also cut 2 of each patterned paper, cut out the Katie Label to create a frame.  I stapled 3 scallop circles together to make a cloud template then sponged with Broken China Distress Ink.  The image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers & fussy cut.

I thought this card would be great to give a teacher.  I used several companion dies from Katie Pivot to stamp the inside sentiment on.  On the front & back panel, I used the grass from Outdoor Edges.  The All Seasons Tree fits perfectly and looks so pretty with lots of little flowers from that same die set.  I added Glitter Dots to the centers of all the flowers.

Here's where I attached the acetate spiral from Spiral Circle Pull.  I put lots of flowers & some apples on the spiral - and they all move when the card is opened.

And a view from the top.
