PTI MIM #273: Spinner Cards

Lizzie Jones was the star of the show this week with her Make It Monday video for Papertrey Ink. She shared her tips on making an interactive spinner card. I haven't really been much into interactive cards, but I just had to try this after watching Lizzie create her sweet Valentine. Because I spent the day reorganizing stamps and dies, I barely had time to play. After two phone calls from friends and then watching the Tom Brokaw special on NBC, I just had to prove to myself that I could do this technique. Without further ado, here's my blue anniversary card with a spin.

Popped over from Darnell's awesome NBUS linky as your card caught my eye. It's gorgeous!! I love the gemstone folder you used - it adds so much texture to your lovely interactive spinner card. I have yet to try that technique but it looks like so much fun!
