I Spotted a Pop Up

A card I made for my Grandson for him to go back to school after the spring break. As a Jehovah's Witness, I don't send him birthday, xmas cards and the like (he's not a JW) so I do like to make him cards  whenever I can. This is of course a Mo's Digital Pencil Image...and it was so much fun to colour with my Lyra pencils. My G.son is a curly blond, and I just wish I had enough confidence with my colouring to give him a head of curls....still he usually has to have the curls shorn off before going back to school...how I miss them. 

It's another free standing pop-up, and below is how it looks folded for posting,
 this fitted into an C5 envelope. 
I have added a homemade fimo heart charm, decorated with sakura souffle pen,
 and a handmade with love heart charm. 
They are fastened with a brad I decorated myself.

My brads were coloured with acetate pens and then dotted about with sakura pens. My 'ribbon' came tied around a new set of towels. It reminded me of the tape my mother used to write out names on to sew into our clothes for school. Of course my grandson would have no idea of such things...but it appealed to me for a going back to school card. 

It's like to enter this into 
Mo's DP2 Challenge - I see Spots
