Hidden messages

This weeks challenge over at paper crafting journey is a real fun one and I do hope you'll join in.
This week Lisa has set you the challenge of creating a hidden message card - we want to see a message hidden somewhere on your card - it could be on a pull out tag or a message in a little pocket - the options are endless.

Here is my hidden message and I don't mind telling you that I am quite proud of my card esp' as it was my first try at a kinetic card.

I even decorated the inside too !

If you've never tried one and want to have a go I would recommend Beate's fabulous tutorial over at splitcoast stampers which is what I used. I am a visual learner and find it much easier to watch a video tutorial than read a list of instructions but on splitcoast they have both so either way you are covered !

So if you've never seen one of these cards in action let me tell you what happens ! When you pull out the top insert the bottom one magically pushes out too !

I made my card, with this fantastic stamping boutique image, into a get well soon card since we are coming up to the season when I will be wanting a few of these here in the UK !

Our sponsor, The stamping boutique, is offering the winner of this challenge 5 digi images so what are you waiting for ?
