Standing Z Card / CC 26

Hello!  I am happy to share my project for the Color Challenge # 26 at Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy TV challenges.  Each week we will pick a color or series of colors for you to use on your card, scrapbook page, or other paper craft.   It is easy to enter and easy to win a prize and you can enter up to 5 different projects.  

This week's colors are:  

Here's my card using a set called Great Flowers.  I used Twinkling H2O's to add extra shine to the black heat embossed image.  It looks SO sparkly in person!

This is a fancy fold card called a Standing Z Card.  Here is another photo:

If you would like to make this card, the directions are simple.  
Cut a piece of card stock 4 1/2 inches by 11 inches.  
Score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches.  
Fold mountain, then valley using the photo as a guide.  The 5 1/2 inch section is the back of the card.  
Cut a piece of card stock 4 x 5 1/4 inches and layer and decorate as you choose.  
Create a "stop" or "catch" with a label, flower, bling, etc., popped up so that the finished front panel will "catch" under the "stop."
