Bah! Humbug! #20

Another Friday ... another Bah! Humbug! Challenge and this time we're raising the bar a little and asking for Kinetic creations.   Sounds impressive I know, but the dictionary definition of kinetic is quite simply " ... relating to or resulting from motion" so all we want is some kind of movement.   Fortunately, there are plenty of wonderful ways to get action into your cards and a gazzillion online tutorials which show us how ... so there's no excuse not to join in!
I opted to make a Penny Spinner card using only an A4 sheet of mega-shiny card for decoration, black cardstock for the base, a few adhesive gems and some silver peel offs ... you wanna' see?
Okay here you go ... TA DAH!
So NOW you want to know what it does ... right?  
Watch carefully ...

Isn't it cool? 
I have a pirouetting poinsettia which spins from side to side ... and you wouldn't believe how easy it was to make.  There is a link to the tutorial over at Bah! Humbug! along with other fabulous ideas for Kinetic Cards from Ann, Karen and Clare, so shake your booty over there and check them all out.
