Surprises at Dream Valley!

Hello and happy Sunday!  I'm a scheduling this post as nine year old is playing one of possibly two baseball tournament games today.  Go Barrington! 

It has been baseball, baseball, baseball around here, but I managed to make this card for Dream Valley in between times!  This fortnight we would like to see a surprise on your creation.  It could be a surprise fold, pop up etc.  Our sponsor is Digi's With Attitude.  

I have made a napkin fold card.  You can find the tutorial for it here.  Here is a picture of the first layer:

here it is all decorated:

and here is the finished product all folded together:

I got all of the prep work done, looked at it and then decided not to decorate it anymore!  I liked it the way it was.  The only problem with that is that there's no stamping!  Eek!  Oh well, I like it anyway! lol Just a tip:  If you are making the napkin fold card, use a colored base paper instead of white, then you don't need as much patterned paper to cover it all.  Saves more dp for later!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tip Top Tuesday - Shaped card
