Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #43 Pop Up

This week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are doing pop up cards. I had hoped to have come up with another idea than this one, but really struggled with the pop up aspect. I had searched you tube for tutorials and finally found one, so I hope to be done another version of a pop up card. This card is more of a spring loaded card, but still pops up. I had wanted to make a birthday card for my birthday today, but loved this new image from Stamping Bella called Romantic Cage. Isn't it darling. The image I used on my cover is the Love Definition Block. I made this Valentine's Day card for my oldest daughter, Sarah, as it gives the definition of Love as "A feeling of warm attachment, or deep affection, as for a parent, child or friend". The 2 little birds are just too cute. The paper I used is from Bo Bunny and is part of the Whoo Loves You Collection. I added tons of pearls, and pink rhinestones to the flowers on the front of the card. The larger pink rhinestones are from Martha Stewart's Wedding Collection. I also tied it with my famous Papertrey ribbon. I had bought the self adhesive springs from a shop somewhere, just not sure what spending spree they were part of, LOL. I colored my image with my copics. I am sure having fun with them. I can't believe though how many you have out on the table once you are done coloring. I use 3-4 tones per area I color and with the blending it can take longer to color an image. Once the fun wears off, I will jump back and forth from copics to pencil crayons.
This week our prize is from our very own Design Team Member, Sarah. Sarah has donated this gorgeous stamp set from Verve called "Swan Song". Here's what it looks like:

So good luck to everyone and let's see what you can create. Check back later today for my Birthday Pop Up.
Hugs xx
