H2H Challenge - How fancy are your folds?

I've missed playing along with the H2H challenges this summer!  I've been following along and there have been some fabulous challenges that I really wanted to join in, but I just never seemed to be able to find the time.

I'm baaaack!  I was so happy to send the kids off to school this morning so I could play! The challenge from Heart to Heart this week is to include fancy folds on your project. Not sure if this gatefold can be classified as a "fancy" fold as it is actually very simple... I made the inside fancy to compensate!

Here it is fully open,

All product CTMH
Felicity paper pack (special promo, not available anymore :( so sad, I love these papers)
Stamps D1266 Baby Steps and D1262 Express Postage
"clothesline and pins" out of Waxy Flax in Colonial White
Inks in Twilight, Bamboo, Barn Red and Cocoa
I colored the images using a Blending Pen and ink pads

BabyBlue safety pins hold up the clothesline,
Cuttlebug and Sizzix texture plate in Harlequin for embossed background.

What do you think? Does this qualify as a fancy fold card?
 I'm entering it for this weeks' challenge at H2H anyway!

Thanks for popping by,
I wasn't sure this qualified as "fancy folds", but I guess the gals at H2H liked it anyway, because they chose it as one of their Friday Five this week. Thank you so much! I would sure hate to be one of the judges, I don't know how they choose just 5 from all the wonderful entries...
