Grungy Monday & Squirrely Challenge - Free Standing Pop Up Card & Winner announced

Here's my submission for Nancy's Squirrely Challenge; yes, i finally re-joined the group!
Papers, Stamps & Fibers are from the Club Scrap kit called Castaway, except the beads which are from Into The Wild-which is no longer available :( . You can't really see it, but i put a drop of liquid pearls in pearl for the oyster shell's pearl. Followed tutorial on Splitcoast stampers for the paper engineering and Studio L3's Grungy Monday 08 technique shown here by T!m Holtz.

I may also use this for my GM submission as well. Undecided since it breaks from my norm of 8x8 page w/song inspiration. just rambing no attention.**UPDATE** I have decided to also make this my GM submission since time is running short and I'll be gone all day taking a class in Dayton from Jennifer Mcguire and Shari Carroll and I'm going to use this as my THANK YOU to one of them!! Omigosh, you can imagine my excitement!

Lastly, I wanted to announce the winner of my contest for the Club Scrap Die Cutters Blog Hop. The correct number of Butterflies used was 93, so Myska wins with this comment:
