Thank you card for Cricut Cardz Challenge

Hi all you crafty people.  Today I made a card for the Cricut Cardz Challenge.  This card had a recipe to follow:
1. Blue, Yellow and White
2. A thank you card
3. A border cut from any cricut cartridge
I have seen several joy fold cards, but I had never made one so I thought that this was a good time to try one.  This card is rectangular but the folds open bottom to top not side to side.  I actually tried to film  while I was making the card, but after three quarters of the card was done my husband came around the corner calling me.  Oh well just as well cause THE CAMERA WAS NOT TURNED ON!!! Phooey.
OK so I thought I would make another card similar and film that one.  I shut the camera off to get something instead of just editing that part out so guess what. Now I have two videos and I don't know how to put them together.  Well I will get one eventually.  This is a learning process for me.  So back to the card.  I like the way it came out. What do you think?

Base cut at 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 scored at 4 1/4
center card 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 2 3/4
Mats are from scraps and cut 1/4 smaller
Ribbon from Michaels
Boarder cut from Elegant Cakes stretched to 5 1/2 on my gypsy
Scalloped circles cut at 3, 2 3/4
Circle at 2 1/2

Well that's all for now.  Hope you like it.
See you nice
