Pop Up Birthday Card

Hey everybody,
Hope everyone is having a great week, and looking forward to the weekend.
As you look at my next card, you might be saying "Giddy Up", and "Yee Haw" do not go with a unicorn, and you'd be right.  But this card was made for one of my best friend's (Denise) granddaughter (Maria), and I have been invited to her birthday party this Saturday.  Denise knows I make greeting cards, and when I asked for a suggestion of what to make, this is what she told me.  Maria likes horses, but really likes unicorns, the words "yee haw", and "giddy up", and the color purple. So, that's just what she's getting.
In looking for inspiration, I ran across a couple of different videos on "birthday cake pop up cards".  I like to make as much of my cards as I can, so I opted to make my own pattern.  In doing so the top layer ended up being about 1/4" to big, so I decided to call it a "statue plaque"
The stamp "Proud Unicorn" is from Spesch Stamps, sentiments made in Paint shop pro, and colored with ProMarkers.  I did make a card box for it, just didn't include it in the photos.
Other mediums used:
Paper; solid purple shades are from Colorbok, and the horseshoe pattern and front card pattern was from a gift, so I don't know who makes it.
Cake sides: Ribbon from my stash, and colored
Unicorn decorations: Peel & Stick Glitter Foam, glitter dust from Creatology, pearl stickers from Michaels.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.

This is adorable, and I'm really impressed at the popup feature (dunno how to do those or specialty folds..yet!). This little girl is gonna just love this especially designed card. Bet it will be the only one she gets that is made just for her. It's really awesome, and you did a marvelous job with it. You're a nice friend to take this time & effort. Hugs & TFS
