Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloon Flap Card

I have no idea if there is an actual name for this card, but I'm calling it a flap card.  I received a beautiful card from Sharon Burkert using this fold and decided to CASE it using the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Bundle.  I love the colour combination of Berry Burst and Bubble Bath.  

Isn't this card pretty!
