Pop up box card

Today's card is a first for me - it's the latest trend in card making circles.  It's a pop-up box card.  Believe it or not but this card will actually fold flat.  All you do is fold up the flaps and then press flat!  So it's perfectly fine for posting and then pops straight back up when the recipient opens it.  I created my own template and sort of just cut and folded where I thought I should.  The back flap was originally down as well but I decided to reinforce it and add some cloud paper.

The image I have used is from Mo's Digital Pencil and there's a girl available too.

I coloured the images with my copics and added a little gloss to the balloons and the little boy's buttons.  There is also yellow Stickles dots on the yellow patterned paper.

Here is a close up of the little boy and the balloons that I individually added coloured twine too.
Look at the joy on his face!  I just had to add more balloons for him to play with.  I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Inky Chicks - Birthday
Crafty Sentiments Design - Hand Coloured Image
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, Party Time
Simply Create Too - For a Child
