Fall and push pops?

It's time to post my project for the current Lollipop Ladies Challenge:
Push Pops with the optional challenge of movement
and here is the inspiration photo
It seems like my mind is always going in 10,000 different directions and never focusing long enough on one thing to do it right.  I was so busy focusing on the "Movement" part (since it had me so stumped!!) that I forgot we were supposed to be inspired by the photo.  But I think I did manage to salvage it with the pops of orange that speak to that orange push pop in the forefront of the inspiration photo.  (Good save, right?)

 This is an anniversary card for my cousin and her husband.  Their anniversary is next month and her favorite flower is the sunflower.
 Here's the movement part:  when you pull out that orange tab on the right, the front panel folds up and shows a secret sentiment underneath.  I used this tutorial from splitcoaststampers.  First time I have tried it and even though I had to figure out my own measurements because my card is a different size than the example it was not all that difficult.
And here's the sentiment on the inside.  Now hop on over to the Lollipop Ladies blog to check out all the details.  And then come play along, please.  We have to have 7 entries to give out the prize and as of now, there aren't any.

Heather, you have excelled. Fabulous card and the movement bit - wonderful. We seem to have no takers - is there a black list out there or something on this challenge?????!!!

Heather: I just LOVE this wonderful autumn card. I can't quite wrap my head around how that pull tab works, but it sure is cool. I am SUCH a "dork" when it comes to fancy folds and things like this, but you sure ROCKED IT, and I guess I'd have to see it to figure out how it works. That's why my cards are always the same old boring thing - and I have never entered a fancy folds (etc) challenge. I know, I need to learn these things!!! Well, you sure made an incredible card, and thanks SO MUCH for sharing it in our challenge this week. It's such a blessing to have you share your talents with us. May God bless you this week in a special way. Please join us again soon.
