365 Cards - Scor-It week- Day 49 - Accordion fold

I am quite late posting my card today as I have been out all day at our weekend crop.

Day 49 on 365 Cards and sadly the very last day of this Scor-It week, I have really enjoyed this week of challenges and hope we can do this again at some point.

Onto today's challenge which was to make an accordion card, I used this style of card for my Granddaughters birthday in March and everyone was so impressed with it I decided to use the same sort of card again.

Here is my card for today



and this is what it opens out too



I don't know who wrote the poem but it has this poem inside it

When I was 1
I had just begun

When I was Two
I was nearly New

When I was 3
I was hardly me

When I was 4
I was not much more

When I was 5
I was just alive

But now I am 6
I'm as clever as clever
So I think I'll be 6 now
forever and ever



I have kept the embellishment quite simple as I have just added gems to correspond with the number on each page.

Papers are digital papers from Shabby Princess
Numbers cut on my Cricut
Gems and ribbon from my stash

Hope you like it

I vaguely remember that poem...

I think it's from the Christopher Robin/ Winnie the Pooh book of poems 'Now we are Six' - presumably by AA Milne.

I could so easily be wrong though....
