Pop Up Flower Pot!!

So the other day I was forwarded an email from Karen Burniston, the Queen of the Sizzix Pop Up Dies, and it showed a Pop Up Flower Pot she made with the Pop Up Cake Die. I couldn't wait to try it out! Sooooooo, as soon as I tucked my two little men in bed Monday Night and made sure hubby was suitable occupied with football, I raced to the craft room and there I stayed for far longer than I expected actually...this was no easy card to create. But I LOVE how it came out!! I also tried to incorporate this week's Late Night Stamper's Color Challenge of Old Olive, Really Rust, and Ruby Red!

So here is the front:

I thought the sentiment from Bella's Bloom was more than appropriate for what you are greeted with upon opening the card!
Hello Flower Pot!!

Isn't she gorgeous? (is it so wrong to pat one's self on the back every now and then??) I love the quilled flower, I was afraid it wouldn't fit inside the card at first but it worked wonderfully!

Like I said, I will make no qualms about the time effort this card took, especially because my cards are usually quite Clean and Simple and don't take a huge time period to assemble. But it was well worth the time invested because I was so proud of the outcome. If you'd like to download the tutorial provided by Karen on making a flower pot with your pop up cake die, click here.
So, any suggestions for who deserves to get this beauty in the mail????
