Pop up Tilda Card

Hi all...
Wish everyone is in their best of crafting spirits !! Today I am here to present my lovely Pop-Up card.
Its everyone's favourite Magnolia's beautiful Tilda.. I am in love with her expressions of life. Wish my daughter grows up that sweet and lovely too.. :P
This is a Pop up card, where two Tilda's are busy celebrating life and best season in life.. Spring...
My tilda's are busy playing with flowers, butterflies and happiness.. 

Being in Love with yourself and your Life .. is the best thing one can achieve..
My card tries to showcase that..
I less prefer light or white skin Tilda.. My Tildas' are more of Indian origin..
Sometimes Indo African, sometimes totally Indian ;)

Check out the different views of my card, then later we discuss the details of its making...
