Accordian Card

I recently discovered this cool accordian template at Paperlicious. I had also seen a few on SCS. So I thought I had to give it a try. I must say it was a pretty big challenge for me. It is a big card to try and come up with an idea for...or at least I found it a challenge. Here is what I came up with...

I like it, but the front still 'needs' something. I tried a few things, but then it just looked too busy. Any suggestions?? I actually tried this card earlier in the week, but I totally distroyed it!! I tried adding a ribbon to try and keep it closed. This was before I bought my new 'Crop-a-dile', and SU punches will not punch through this much cardstock. So I decided instead I would give it a shot without a closure...I still like it.

Thanks for stoppin' by :0)
