Pink Girly Pop 'n Cuts card

I never really have a 'finished card' idea in mind - I usually just start a card, and it evolves as I make it. I started off last night colouring the little 'Gorjuss' girl with Copics, then thought Ooo - she might look nice 'sitting' on the edge of a pop 'n cuts card, then a whole dining room kind of grew up around her, including pink shaggy carpet.
Had great fun making this!

 I used the Label insert in the Pop 'n Cuts base die, but folded the top section of the label bit back, and secured it with an extra piece of cardboard glued to the underneath.

 The whole card does fold flat - for the cake stand, I made a kind of 4 sided box (to attach it to the back of the card) which can fold flat, upwards. The bottom of the cake stand is not attached to the table, so it can 'float' upwards too.

 For the 'It's your Birthday' frame, I used the old red 'Bookplates, Oval' Sizzix die, to cut out thick mount board, and coated it with glue and glitter.
The Sentiment stamps are from Purple Onion, and the cake stand is from the Dovecraft 'Cupcakes' set.
The resin picture frame, and swirl on the cake stand are by Melissa Frances, and I used Tim Holtz's Scalloped On the Edge die.

 I'm adding this card to Sweet Stampin's 'Pastel' challenge, and also Totally Gorjuss' 'Spring Shades' challenge.
