Happy To You!

It was our granddaughter's 2nd birthday recently and I wanted to create a card that would have a bit of an interactive element. I chose Mindy's Zoo (Autumn Leaves) because Elise is such a little monkey!

As we neared her birthday, I'd ask her "who has a special day coming up?". Her response was always "Happy To You... ME!" LOL!

Ok... back to the card. I also used Around & About Sentiments (Papertrey Ink) for the sentiment and for the little flowers in the scallop border. The paper and ribbon are all Papertrey Ink

So, I suppose you're wondering about that interactive element. Here's a look at the inside. I stamped the lion, colored and cut him out and attached him to a scallop circle. His main is covered with gold Sparkly Fluff (Our Craft Lounge - LOVE that stuff!) as is the end of his tail.

Once completed I folded a strip of cardstock into an accordion, attached it to the card and to the scallop. When you open the card, the lion bounces.

This picture shows it from the side view. She loved it! Of course it held her attention all of 10 seconds! lol

This is Elise and her big sister Grace, in a rare moment of sitting still.

Thanks for stopping by!
