My grandson's favorite subject in school this year is engineering.
For his 15th birthday tomorrow I thought I'd try some engineering of my own by making him a card with a mechanical iris.
When you move the yellow tab up,
the eye opens and this is what you see.
It works a little harder than I'd like, but I'm no engineer!
Here is the inside of the card.
This week, at Double Trouble Challenge #99, Troublemaker asks that you choose an event as your theme, but the event is Up To You. (My event is Matthew's birthday.) Twisted Sister wants to see a number (15). And Double Dare has teamed up with the Anything Goes Paper Fun Day Challenge #36, which I am entering, too.
Here are a few additional challenges:
Paperminutes Challenge #721 - Numbers
Use Your Stuff Challenge #437 - Plaid
Allsorts Challenge week 653 - Use a Die (The Happy Birthday is a die from Shady Lane Expressions.)
Inkspirational Challenge #2 - Plaid
My December birthday cards are now finished and I can return to Christmas card mode.
