Accordian Fold Card with SYI sunflowers

Happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone.
I have been crafting a lot the last few days but not able to post as they are things for  Blog Hops and Design Teams.  I did take time to do the 
 My Creative Time the challenge this week is to make a  project using green and yellow somewhere  and to  use an older cart.  I changed my mind several times and then  I made this card  and after much experimenting and  redoing parts I am pretty happy with it.  In one of my card books they had a 4 fold card but it was done with  a 12 inch piece of paper.  I didn't like the size so I cut a piece of  12 inch paper in  1/2 and then trimmed one inch of one side so it was 6 x 11 and two inches off the other piece so it was 6 x 10.  Then I scored and folded one inch on each and glued them together.  I folded each 10 inch side in 1/2 to give me 4 folds at 5 1/2 inch each.  I then started two inches up on one side and cut free hand up to top.  I covered the front and the back.  The caterpillar, sunflowers, pots, and leaves all come from Stretch My Imagination.   I pushed myself and used only green, yellow, golden yellow and  a little white.  I added stamps Always Forever Friends on each piece and then a place to write.  
This is picture of card standing up.  
This is front side open with stamped words.  
This is back side so flower shows to front when open.
