Peace - Pop Up Card

This card is entered in the following challenges:
Lucy's Cards: Challenge 6 - Inspiration.  - My inspiration for this card was created by Mary Jo, you can view it here.
SCS Friday Free 4 All -

I saw this video at Splitcoast Stampers for a Free Standing Pop Up Card and had to try it. I must admit mine was more freestanding the first couple of times I popped it up, but I kept playing, adding a little ,popping up, popping down, well you get the picture so it's not as straight and sturdy as the one my friend and I made together yesterday, of course it was hers and I was showing her how to do it so she took it home, lol. But this will give you a good idea of what you can do, easily, with this card. The first picture above shows it almost fully closed.
When you pull the tag up by the curled ribbon it begins to 'pop' out of the base and appear.
Fully extracted this is the end result a darling card that has popped out and stands freely. Cool huh?
The chipboard pieces are from Me and My Big Ideas, the beautiful flower shown here is from Petaloo, called Mulberry Street
The chipboard bird is from Maya Road, covered in the same cardstock (which was from Costco) and a bead added for the eye.  This is an extremely fun card to make, very simple, the hardest part is trying to decide which paper to have out, which to have in and how you want to decorate it.
