Hidden Treasures.... Aarrrrr...

This is something that I have worked on for a few days. I just could not get it just right till now. WHOHOO... I love when that happens. So here is my idea of having a hidden map of a treasure in a card. Looks like a normal card, you can write on the inside etc. Then......

you look a little closer and see that if you pull on the boat flap you have a hidden map underneath. Isn't this cool. I was like a kid making this. I was thinking of the boys the whole time I made this card. I might have to given it to them tomorrow for their birthday, that way I get to keep the card forever. LOL
This is a new set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Smooth Sailing and Lost at Sea. Now be gentle this is my second time trying to make *clouds* and I think I did okay. I hope you enjoyed my fun. See you back here on Friday for Flourishes Friday Focus. Have a great day.
