Primary colours and a different fold

Good Morning! I've been working my way through the untidy piles on my desk since I got back from holiday and last night managed a bit of creative time in a reasonably large space!
This is my card for this week's Allsorts  and Rosie D's challenge. The theme at Allsorts is to use a minimum of two primary colours and the theme at Rosie D's is to use more than one fold. I made a square card and folded the front back on itself. The background was made using Barn Door  and Chipped Sapphire distress inks applied with a shaving brush. I stamped the friendship definition (Hero Arts) with weathered wood distress ink and the Silhouette grass (Hero Arts) embossed with white detail embossing powder.
I ummed and ahhed over whether to add a ribbon, a sentiment or anything else, and decided less was probably more with this one... still not sure though! Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
