Spinning Science!

It's time for some Polkadoodles inspiration!  Remember, when you visit the Digi Choosday Site to pick up your discount code to Polkadoodles; it's good all day today....Tuesday!  It's a great way to pick up those digi's you've had your eye on!

My card today is a spinner card made from a design sheet found in the Science/Math/Teacher/Professor/Geek/Student/Chemistry Bundle Kit.  You can also find it in the Work & Play 12 Download Collection Big Kahuna Bundle.

I cut 2 design sheets so I would have a front and back for all the little spinner pieces.  I cut the plaid frames from paper found in the Paper Heaven 8.  Then I backed the inside of the card with a strip of black to make it look like it was all written on the blackboard when the card is closed.  (There is a sheet of white under the black to write my sentiment.)  My little ovals are all attached by fishing line and taped in under the frame and blue cardstock on the front of the card. Before placing the card in the envelope, I twirl the ovals; then when you open the card, the words spin!  You can see that in the video below.

Off to the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon:  It's Clear to Me (include acetate or window)

Jo's Scrap Shack:  AG
