Look out world!

Ok, seriously, this might be my most favoritest card ever!!!  It came out soooo cute and exactly as I had envisioned it (which rarely ever happens!).   My three girlies and I are going to a birthday party (of sorts--we're going to go jumping at a giant indoor trampoline park!  Fun!!) for a 9-year-old boy.  So, of course, I needed a birthday card perfect for a great little guy.  And here it is:
 Ready for the first surprise?  The top blue panel lifts up to reveal . . .
And surprise #2: it's also an easel card.  
In this last picture, you can see the inside a bit better.  Super duper cute, if you ask me!

Challenges:
Meljen's #182--Peek-a-boo (lift up flap and easel card)
Just Add Ink #187--sketch (loved this sketch and just HAD to use it)
Word Art Wednesday--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Sentimental Sundays #177--birthday card, shaped or easel with a sentiment on the front
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #75--A trick or treat (the trick is the lift up flap with the hidden sentiment)

Supplies:
Stamps: Meljen's Designs "Superhero" digi; Raisin Boat "It's a bird . . . It's a plan" sentiment; Verve "To the Moon" hidden sentiment and stars; Sweet n' Sassy Stamps "Landscape Sillhouettes" city landscape; SU! "All Year Cheer 2"sentiment inside
Dies/embossing: Spellbinders circles embossing plate; Sizzix star die; Verve "Scalloped Trim Trio" star border

I agree! It is super cute! It is always nice when the project actually turns out as you envisioned it. Love the way you interpreted the sketch to include the hidden message.

Thank you for joining us at Meljen's Designs for our Peek-a-Boo challenge!
