Crazy 4 Challenges 'Pop it Ups' Purple Onion Stamps Birthday Card

At Crazy 4 Challenges this week we have a sketch challenge - here is my card front based on the sketch:
I used Purple Onion Design stamps, coloured with Copics, and for the pop-up mechanism inside the card, used Karen Burniston's new 'Lucy Label Pop-Up' die from her Pop it Ups collection for Elizabeth Craft Designs. 
The card base was cut with Karen's Pop 'N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edges, though any card can be used with the 'Lucy Label' die.
 The Lucy Label die also creates a little pop-up part on the shelf, to which I stuck a cloud from another of Karen's new sets, the 'All-Season Tree'.
The red & pink polka dot label, is cut with another die from the 'Lucy Label' set.
All the papers are from American Craft's 'Lucky Charm' 12 x 12 pad.
I inked all the edges with Distress Ink, and stuck the card layers together with an ATG gun. Finally I added some sparkle details with Stickles.
