Birthday Pop-Up Card

Hello my fellow crafty peeps! I hope you are all having a wonderfully fabulous weekend! It's been pretty warm here - 93° today - but bearable, so I'm not complaining :)  Today's card is one I made for my daughter-in-law, Kayla's birthday. I had to wait until she received it before I could post it, lol. Anyway, I used my new card kit from Jinger Adams, which I purchased from HSN recently. It is such a fun kit! The only bummer about these pop-up cards is that they're really hard to photograph well. I did the best I could but it truly does look much better in person. You'll just have to take my word for it :) ....
