A lil bit tricky

Wow it seems like forever since i have been able to craft !!!! with the school holidays and our own family get aways i havent sat at my desk for ages !!!!
Thankfully i had kept in front with my dt work but now i need to get back to it lol,
This card im sharing today was made for an order a short while ago, but has not been showcased anywhere, so i am hoping it will still count to the challenges i am going to enter it into?
The order was from my cousin who lives 250 miles away and he wanted a special card made for his fiances birthday, he looked through my facebook album and chose 3 elements of three different cards and wanted them all putting on the card lol, boy way that going to be tricky lol,

he wanted a fold like this one that i did on a card about 3 years ago and couldnt remember exactly how it was done so i changed it slightly and made this fold up from just measuring and folding lol, then he wanted a love heart iris fold, agian a technique ive not done for about a year at least,
then he wanted to have some dark red coloured paper roses on the card too,
here is the card i made lol, i wasnt 100% sure about it but i sent an email with pic to check it was what he wanted and he said it was perfect so that was one happy customer lol,
The beautiful patterned card is from kanban
This pic shows the fold i did, its not quite the one he wanted but as id forgot how to do that one i made this one up form memory lol,im not sure what the name is for this type of fold but im sure there must be one?? and it stood on its own just fine. it was quite tricky to cut the patterned card to size so there was the same gap all the way around the base,
(im a bit of a symetrical freak and like to get even finishes lol)
 The to be able to fold it i used a deep red seem free ribbon from stamping up as it doesnt crease to much,
and here is the pic of it folded, it was wierd not using an image or my promarkes and even more weird that i couldnt use my stickles lol, but the customer wants what they want hey !!!
Id like to enter this card into the following challenges if i may?
1, La La land - More than one fold
2, Crafty catz - Anthing goes
3, Paperplay - Shaped card
4, Papertake - Anthing goes
5, Joanna sheen - Try something new

I hope you like the card ?? i know its a bit old fashioned but my cousin chose these elements that he wanted on it so thats what i had to do,
happy sunday folks xx
