Building Block/Pop Up Card

Hello, again.  
I'm back with another "Kinetic" card.  I'm having a blast with these.  The directions are at SplitCoastStampers, but I chose the tutorial on Card-Making-Magic.

I decided to make my 'blocks' into differently sized gift boxes.  I saw that idea somewhere, but I couldn't find it again.

This is the front of my card.  I've used #294 Tilda with Balloon.  My cardstock and dp are both from my stash.  Tilda is colored with Copic Markers.  The background is done with a combination of Copics and Adirondack Lights.

A close up of Tilda.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.  You can see that the balloons were made dimensional by putting two layers together with pop dots.  The little tag is from a SU punch and I just found this sentiment in the bottom of a box I was cleaning up!  Whoooot!

Here is the card opened to show all the panels.  I don't know what I was thinking when I chose all that pink - yikes!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  This card is not part of a challenge or a Dr. Monday M.D., but I do appreciate your comments anyway.

Many blessings to you all,
