Seize the Brithday - No Toppings

Hello!   It is time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday.  Birthday cards should be fun and cute.  Right?  What is more fun than an interactive card.  I tried my hand at doing one of those this challenge, and I think I like it.  Remember, there are no toppings this challenge.
                                           " Our "Toppings" option this time is...
No Toppings!"


We have a new Special Party Guest too.  Her name is Cathy and you can see her blog Here!
     Please check out what all of the other designers have done at Seize the Birthday.

Here is my example card. 
 Notice the wheel on the right side of this card.  
It turns an inner circle that changes the object in the circle.  

   Here, you can see the otter disappearing, as I turn the wheel.
 I used the My Favorite Things Stamp set, Otterly Love You  . Gina K designs heavy white card stock and distressed ink in Evergreen Bough. I colored the otters with my Copic markers, C1, C3, C5, and C 7, and of course red for the heart. I can think of so many cute critters that would make a great card for a birthday, or for any other occasion.
 I saw this done Sandy Allnock and made just a few changes.  I only put in three images instead of four and made them a bit bigger than the window.  
I hope that I have inspired you to make an interactive card.  But that is not necessary for this challenge.  You have a free design this time as there are no toppings, just make it a Birthday card.  
Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday, your comments really make my day special.
