Mojo Monday Joy Fold

Happy Monday!
  Boy do I have a lot of things on my To Do List today! 
So let's get right to it....Here are the sketches for today's Mojo Monday card:


I don't use many square cards for 2 reasons;
1. Our postal regulations - Square cards are more expensive to mail.
2.   Operation Write Home, to which I send many of my cards, requires A2 cards.
But I decided to go with the square card anyway.

 I had a plan.

Here is my Mojo Monday #317 square card entry:

Now on to the plan.....

A joyfold card (tutorial here at Beccy's Place)  would be a great way to incorporate a sketch for a square card into an A2 card. 
Check it out....
Using an A2 card base you cut a strip off the front of the card and decorate it.  I added some patterned paper to the inside that is exposed when the card is folded.
The square fold card is glued into the left side of the base.  (Important note:  When you make the square card, the fold is on the right side instead of the left!)  I added another strip of patterned paper to the inside of this card too.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
