Always SCS CC208

This card is for the SCS CC208 with a Pretty Pal's twist that it be a Pop-Up card.  I was not thrilled with the color combination at first, but I gathered all of my "ingredients" anyway.  It turned out WAY different than it began!  Using the SU Always stamp set, I first stamped the branch in Kiwi Kiss on Very Vanilla cardstock, then mounted that onto textured Kiwi Kiss cardstock and anchored it with Chocolate Chip photo corners.  I framed that with a Nesties scalloped rectangle in Chocolate Chip.  I didn't have any SU DSP with Pink Passion, so I made my own, using one of the flower circles and the branch stamped in Pink Passion and Kiwi Kiss, respectively, onto Very Vanilla cardstock and matted with Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The 5.5 x 4.25 card is in Pink Passion.  Last minute detail is a Pink Passion stamped flower circle upper right of the first Kiwi Kiss stamped branch.
I mounted a strip of Kiwi Kiss ribbon with antique brads.  Inside is a pop-up Pink Passion stamped heart stamped onto Very Vanilla.  When I went to take the photo, I found that this tin of Dark Chocolate Covered Ginger Snaps I had bought at Trader Joe's yesterday had the exact colors on it, so I snapped the photo of my card sitting pretty on it.
