My First Pop Up Box Card

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday! This week's challenge is a nice and simple Anything Goes with the no optional twist.
Our July sponsors are Anne's Digital Art and Paper Temptress.

This is the first time I've made a pop up box card. I've been admiring those by others for quite some time. We've been invited a party this summer to celebrate a couple who got married last year, who were unable to celebrate it back then. So I wanted to make them a keepsake rather than a wedding card. This is the result.

I used papers from Maja Design, distressed with walnut DI. I've used several dies: heart from Memory Box, feathers from Spellbinders, clock from Marianne, a butterfly that came free with a magazine and a word that is part of a Penny Black die. All die cuts, apart from the clock, are decorated with different embossing powders and frantage.

I made a roll of notes paper and added flowers. Since they will receive a money gift, I also rolled some bills and attached them with a seam binding ribbon. I have used no stamps.
    I want to enter this project in these challenges:
    The Vintage Challenge - must be vintage DO NOT use stamps
    Party Time Tuesdays - #182 Anything Goes
    The Crazy Challenge - Die cuts and punches
    Penny's Paper-Crafty - #187 Anything goes
