Molly shares pop up

hello
Today i'm showing a floating board pop up card. it's my first try and i struggled a little but i finally managed to make it work smoothly and i'm so happy about that.
i used Tiddly inks' Molly shares stamp, set her in a lovely garden with a cat from Lawn Fawn
i built the house and garden with Lawn Fawn's Spring box add on, stitched scalloped border, and Doohickey's fence. the sentiments are all from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.
 the papers are wall and grass textures. i embossed the sentiments with glitter.
 you can check the opening of the card here:

Molly was coloured with Promarkers and pencils. i love to sharpen the Promarkers colors with pencil contrasts. i feel it makes the colours pop (take the dress for instance) and i also feel more at ease with pencil strokes.
Promarkers: ivory, pastel yellow, sunflower, pastel green, mint green, lush green, ice grey 1, cool grey3, cool grey4. cinnamon, saddle brown, spice, honeycomb, dusky pink, pastel pink.

challenges entered: 
As you like it: favourite colouring medium (Promarkers are great at blending and pencils make their colours pop)
sss: add texture
Passion for Promarkers: blooming days
Incywincy: nature and all of its beauty

6 birthday invitations

I was recently asked to make 6 birthday invitations for a cupcake party.
i used the woodland critter huggers die set from Lawn Fawn to make cute animals holding cakes.
the pearls on the cake are pastry decorations. the smiles are from the LF how you bean stamp set.
now here's the back:
and to make it easier to write on the inside, i added some white paper and die cut the edges with the LF stitched cloud border

the back pocket of the critters is going to hold a map leading to the birthday cupcake party...
