An easter card

Here is a card I made using the lovely Warren images from Craftwork cards. I cut A4 card down to 28 x 21 and then measured 6.5 cm in from top left hand side on 21 cm edge and 6.5cm from right hand bottom edge and cut between the two marks, then scored each piece at 7cm, 14cm and 21cm so there are four sections all measuring 7cm.
I then decorated the pieces with some 6 x 6 craft papers and interlocked the 2 pieces as shown in the 2nd photo.
I then cut 2 circles to create semi circles and decorated these with Craftwork cards candy along the front.
The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the valley which I then cut with my nesties and layered onto orange card and stuck on the right hand side of the card and then stuck the image on the right hand side.

The card folds flat for posting but has dimension when pulled out.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
