HSS163 - Pop Up Card With Brand Spankin New Colors!

Pin It Now! Hand Stamped Sentiments has a beautiful color combo to play with this week!  A palette of sherbet inspired colors.  I used a tutorial for a fun pop up card by Ilina Crouse that was created for UStamp With Dawn and Friends Cards With Cool Moves 2013. I love cards that have a surprise factor, so I couldn't wait to try this one!

From the outside, just a pretty cardfront...
 Then when opened...

 Reveals a sweet little box of flowers!  Awwww.
The colors worked perfectly for this card, and for once I was not particularly "challenged" by this challenge!  I plan to use this card template for lots of different themes.  Ilina used "Crazy Love" from the new catalog, and I can see Christmas, Halloween, etc. for inside the box.  So cute!  I will be designing a couple of tutorials for this event as well, so stay tuned ;)

Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and join in the challenge! You have two weeks to play around with the color combo, and I'd love to see what you come up with.
