Need for Speed Circle Card - Rubber Redneck Color Challenge #46

I really needed to make some birthday cards - especially for girls, so I used this color challenge with Rubber Redneck to create a rather unusual birthday card.  It's a circle, that is also part telescope.

Stamps:Bring on the Cake, Beary Best Friends, Need for Speed, Pennant Parade
Inks:  Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Basic black
Papers: Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Big Top Birthday designer paper
Accessories: Coluzzle to cut a 4 1/4" circle, a 4" circle, 3" circle die, Circle die #2, Decorative Label Punch, Metallic brads, 1/8" daffodil delight taffeta ribbon, rhinestones, sewing maching, blender pen, dazzling diamonds, dimensionals, square lattice embossing folder, Melon Mambo embossing powder, Versamarker

2 ( 4 ") circles were cut using the Colozzle - one in Very Vanilla, one in Tempting Turqoise.  The Very Vanilla one was  3/4  covered with the designer paper ; the other 1/4 with embossed melon mambo paper.  Then with the sewing maching the edges were stitched, as was the seam where the 2 papers met.
The Tempting Turquoise 4" circle was matted with a 31/2" circle of designer paper, and then with a 3" Very Vanilla circle.
The image of the car was colored using a blender pen and ink pads, then cut out and mounted on the inside 3" circle with dimensionals. This 3" circle was attached to the inner circle with a single metallic brad on the lower side. This allows the 3" circle to swing out and expose a journalling surface.
Once this was done, the 4" circle was mounted onto the 4 1/2" circle.  The outer edge of the circle was embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder.
The circles were then placed on top of each other, matching the 4" ones.  A metallic brad was inserted through all layers of paper on the left hand side. This allows the top circle to slide open and expose the inside.

Here you see the top circle swinging out of the way and exposing the focal point inside.  Notice the brad below the car.

The focal image swings out of the way to expose a spot to write a message.

The card fits into a standard envelope.
