Astronaut Spinner card

The new challenge at Peachy Keen stamps is a colour inspiration challenge.  I knew exactly what to do as soon as I saw those colours - an astronaut slider card!  I love bright colours and this colour combo was perfect for this card.  Bright red, orange, yellow, blue and green - LOVE IT!

I used the Everyday Faces peachy keen stamp for his face - I use these stamps all the time.  They are my go-to stamps!

I have attempted a very short video (a whole 4 seconds!) to show you how the card works, however, our terrible internet connection drops in and out so it may mean that it doesn't work - but I have tried! My very obliging 5 year old held the card and made it spin for me - he thinks it's the most wonderful thing ever!  As for the video being in black and white...no it's not a creative feature that I thought would be effective, just my boys using my camera and accidentally fiddling with the settings...and I don't know how to change it back!

Hope it works!

Thanks for looking!
