Fancy folds

I love trying new styles of cards I think it just makes a card more interesting and many are far easier to make than they look. Hope you all feel the same as this is the challenge over at this weeks OSAAT.
I was lucky enough to have a play with not only one of the designs from Stitchy's wonderful designers but also with an image from our fab sponsor this time Stamping boutique.
I decided to try and make a free standing pop up card. I had great fun colouring this image and decided to make her a little bit wild and use my bright coloured promarkers. The base I stamped all over with a judikins retro stamp of circles and wpowder embossed with pearl blue powder. The sentiments some are stamped and some hand written, I did think about printing on the computer but I thought hand writing  fit with the theme better. Hope those who were generous enough to let me play with the image are happy with what I did with it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Fab n funky-no backing papers
Crafty catz-quote/sentiment
Sentimental sundays-anything goes
The stamping boutique -monthly challenge

My second card I tried anothe type of card , I wanted to keep the design very simple as the image by Tami  from Gingerloft which can be found here, is pretty complete. I decided to powder emboss with clear powder  on the image printed on glossy card and then apply dye based inks to add colour.
This I mounted on purple mirri card to add some bling and attatched to a pop up type card, sorry not sure what it's called as I took the idea from a card in a Kanban kit.

 The paper is from a magazine freebie which just toned perfect with the inks.
I just realised I've used really similar colour schemes on both cards , totally unintensional, I must have been in a blue/pink and purple mood.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Phindy's challenge-embossing
Scrap creations-bugs
By the cute and girly-anything goes
