Here's the Joy Fold card.

The second card is not showing up for me but I do love the first card. It's beautiful and the embossing you chose for the background is perfect for the card. Well done.

I like these joy fold cards. I may give it a try. I love the way the embossing folder matches the lantern in the first card. Well done.
