Flamingo Wishes Pop Up Box Card

Why do I always think that I will be less busy once school is out for summer?  You would think by now I would have realized that life is ALWAYS busy...just in different ways.  So, it has been awhile, but I have been crafting...just not blogging.  I think I am ready to get back into the groove again though.  So, here is a card I made for one of my friend's July birthday.  I was creating this card in my head for about a month before I actually sat down to make it.  
Here's the Details:

Image - free coloring image I have been saving to make something.  colored with Prismacolor pencils.
Sentiment - Stampin' Up Label Love
Papers - all from my scrap basket
Extras - Stampin' Up Label Love, Petite Petals, & bird punches; Stampin' Up Petitie Petals stamp set, Stampin' Up Pink Passion Ink, Momento black ink; CM corner rounder; Stickles:  Thistle & Lime; clear & green rhinestones; and pearls

I love it!  What do you think?
