Anyway, back to the birthday card.
I watched a You Tube video on a special fold card called a concertina card here. Joanne James did a marvelous job as she takes you through making this card step by step. I was inspired to make this card, and yes it did take me a long time, especially decorating the inside, but I love it, and so will my friend.
The card is so long, that I had to take 2 pictures of the inside side by side. Then I folded the card partially and was able to get a picture of the entire inside.
Here's a list of the products used:

I also used rhinestones on the centers of the flowers and butterflies.
