Happy Easter Spring- Up Card

I was planning on making 10 of these spring- up cards for my co-workers to put at their stations.  I do not think they will hold up with all the activity in a salon, not to mention the wind of all the blow dryer's..lol.  This one may just sit on my massage room vanity.  I even reinforced the bottom with cardboard from a waffle box.  It is still top heavy and can still flip back if a hair dryer hits it.  I have distributed the weight just right so it won't sag down.  I wanted to do a lot more to the card but just don't have the time to fiddle with physics today...

One of the challenges asked what we would want to be if we could fly.  That became the inspiration for my card.  I have allergies and I would love nothing more than to enjoy the outdoors and all the wonderful smells of spring.  Little Bee Tilda fits the bill, besides she is just a little cutie!  I am entering this card into the following:











Here's what I used to create this card.  Everything from my stash:
  • Cricut & Gypsy, Mini Monograms to cut out circle.  Computer generated Happy Easter.
  • Doodled the hearts on Circle and filled in with Stickles
  • Just Magnolia, Tilda Bee Stamp
  • Martha Stewart Scallop page edger
  • Prima Flowers (pearl & faux diamonds from broken play necklace)
  • Cuttlebug & embossing folder
  • Faux stitching with Sakura Pens
  • Part of empty waffle box
  • Dollar Store Egg Glitter Stickers
  • Metalic & Glaze Sakura Pens
  • Purple, Pink, Blue, Orange & Gold Stickles
Thank's for looking, have a great week...

Very, very cool looking!!! What about using a little double sided tape on the very bottom, so it could connect to the counters. It might not blow back that way from the hair dryers and may stay in place..
