Here is my pop up card for the challenge...

The box was very easy to put together. Here is a closer look at Tilda and her Kitty...

From the side it looks like two little boxes with your tag between.

Here is a view of it flattened down so that you can mail it. Remember if you're using flowers that are not flat you will need a bubble wrap mailer or you can make a thicker envelope!

Thank you so very much for dropping in to see my challenge card today.
