How Much Do I Love You?

Hello Fellow Crafters!
Can you believe it's the first of February?!  Don't tell me this is a sign the year is going to go by fast and Christmas is just around the corner....yikes, I better get started on my Christmas cards LOL just kidding....but if you're like me, it sure does sneak up on you quickly.

My card for today is being entered into the 1,2,3 Challenge over at My Creative Time.  Liz, over at Liz's Paper Loft,  is this week's challenge designer.

For the challenge Liz wanted to keep things simple, you know like 1, 2, 3! So that's exactly what it is...use 1 bow, 2 pattern papers, and 3 buttons!  Click HERE for more info

Here's my entry:
Sorry the color in this picture isn't real good.  The bear and the sentiment are from MCT Beary Special Thoughts stamp set that the wonderful Miss Emma gave away during her 12 Day of Christmas...and I was the lucky recipient of this wonderful box of FUN! Thanks again, Emma!!!
The other bear and sentiment are also from the same set. I used Recollections heart punch for the hearts. The comment bubble is cut from the Cricut Basics in the Cricut Craft Room. 

This is the inside of the first portion of the card. Now, before I explain the whole card, because it's kind of like a story book, I'll show you the pics. 

On the inside of one of the other flaps is my second patterned paper.  The white label is cut from Cricut Basics in the Cricut Craft Room. The sentiment again, is from the Beary Special Thoughts. There are lots of fun sentiments in this set.
The other inside half of the card is using the Free Hugs! sentiment, I masked off the "s" and  the "!" so it just says Free Hug and then used MCT Label Font stamp set (also from the box of FUN) to create the word TOKENS.  Now for my 3 item on the card, I used 3 Buttons as my Free Hug Tokens.
This is the view of the center of the card. I pop dotted the left side label.  Then put the buttons down a little on the other half, it helps the card to close and not being lop sided. 

Sorry, this picture is can see how it folds up, with the first two matching, Guess How Much I Love You? then it says "This Much"
Here's the other view with the card opened into the center. 
The dimension for this card, and I was just winging it when I thought of it, so you could do any size. Mine is cut at 10.5 length and 4.25 width.  I scored it at 3.5 and at 7 inches then folded it into a tri fold.  After already making this, I could have folded it a few different ways, but I think it turned out pretty good.  Easy at 1,2,3, right?!
