my first pop up card

I was asked to make this card last year just never got around to posting it, it was the first time I had made a pop up card and have to say I did find it a little challenging getting all the bits to fit into an envelope but as it was to be hand delivered it didn't matter too much that the envelope was a little too big for it. Apparently the card was very well received and much admired which is always nice to know.The papers were from a scrapbooking set I got from qvc many moons ago and as they were all co-ordinated it took all the hard work out of finding matching papers.
I used the scor-pal board to make the scorlines and this made it much easier to fold.

The flowers and cute fellows on the inside were from judikins and lili of the valley respectfully. I fussy cut all out and coloured the flowers in co-ordinating colours to the papers using promarkers. The smaller flowers were punched with a punch from hobbycraft.

I added die cut swirls and butterflies can't remember the actual die makes sorry and a sentiment stamp from lily of the valley and finally a stamped and powder embossed sentiment by the stamp man.

I attached the butterflies on acetate strips so the appeared to be floating which I felt gave a life and movement to the card.

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