A Little Bit of Summer Pop Up Box Card!

Hello dear bloggy friends!  I hope you all are staying thawed out this cold winter.  It has been unusually cold here.  I love winter, but not when the temperatures are this cold.  I would like to be able to send my kids outside to play in the snow, but with it being this cold, they can't.  Anyways, knowing that spring and summer are just around the corner, I decided to bring a little bit of that into my card making.  My sweet SIL's birthday was just here and I know she loves being outside in her flower beds and garden and I am sure she is getting antsy to be able to do that again.  So I thought I would send her a little bit of summer to warm up her birthday a little for her.  Plus, I have been enjoying seeing the "Card in a Box" technique and I decided that I wanted to try my hand at it.  If you know me, I am always trying a new card technique.  Pushing myself to try something new, is something I really enjoy doing, especially when it comes to using my papers and glue!  I love how this turned out!

I Used:
DCWV  Lemon Flower Stack
Yellow textured cardstock
DCWV Glitter Stack for the Star Cuts on my Cricut
The Daisy were stickers that were given to me years ago,from Walmart
Cupcake and "Celebrate" stamps from Hobby Lobby and hand cut out
Rhinestones from Michael's dollar bin 
"Happy Birthday" Stamp from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Stay warm!
