Pedestal Pop-up card

I was intrigued by this challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog to make a pedestal pop-up card.  Since I just bought this stamp from them, it was a natural to put the two together:

The sentiment is an old SU stamp, and this butterfly on the inside is an old TAC stamp:
It looks like it's flying over the card!  I left plenty of white space for writing.  The framing lines are drawn with a marker and clear ruler - it's an easy way to add a little color and definition to the inside.

Other challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles - Thank you card
Squigglefly - new technique
Cutie Pie - border/frame
Stampalot - flight
