Kinetic Pop Up Card

When I see a new card fold, I generally stop what ever I'm doing and give it a try.  Many times I just assemble the base and save the finishing touches for another day when I've decided to whom I'm sending the card and for what occasion.  
I spied this card fold on the Joanna Sheen blog.  They were kind enough to direct viewers to an excellent tutorial, which you can find here.
I'm sure you recognize the image as a House Mouse stamp.  The pretty ribbon up the side is CTMH as is the 'You can never have too much happy' sentiment. (I wrote a personal message and signed the back of this, in case you were wondering.)  The other sentiment stamps are from Sparkle n Sprinkle.  
Isn't it amazing what this swirly embossing folder did to a plain card base?

I am entering this anniversary card in the following challenges:
House-Mouse and Friends Monthly Challenge #172 - Die Cuts and/or Punches (I used a scalloped circle punch.)
Stampotique Designers Challenge #153 - Anniversary/Wedding/Love
Make My Monday Challenge - Anniversaries
Path of Positivity Challenge # 15 - Happiness  (Whether it be my own or someone else's, celebrating a wonderful marriage and all that goes with it, is happiness to me.)
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #44 - Anything Goes, option: use swirls 

By the way, if you read yesterday's post .....

Baby Boy Benjamin David arrived happy and healthy last evening.  The card I posted has been finished and is in the mail.
