Drunken Stampers - Pretty Little Liars

So, I spent the week mulling over this most excellent new challenge from Drunken Stampers...a card with a secret, huh? I can do that. You just never mind that the challenge was posted last Saturday and it took me until today to come up with my card.

My card sort of has two secrets...first, let me show you the 'finished product':
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey;
stamp from The Cat's Pajamas;
Palette Noir ink; Memento Gray Flannel ink;
standard circle Nesties, spots & dots embossing folder;
Stampendous Cotton Ball Fun Flock;
Liquid Applique, microbeads;
paper & rub ons from world's best gal BARB!
The first secret? Cheating to make that circle stretch.
It's not perfectly in half. So sue me. You can't tell afterwards anyhow!
The second secret? The bunny panel opens like a top-fold card to reveal... incredibly sassy birthday greeting. 

29 again? REALLY? 

Since my birthday is in a few weeks, this one is hitting a little close to home. Pour another Captain & Coke, girls.

A close up of the awesomeness that is Liquid Applique frosting:

The Drunken Stampers end their challenges on Friday nights - which makes lots of sense, actually, considering their name.

I cannot wait to share tomorrow's Playing in Paradise challenge - I have such a blast from the past to show you :) Which reminds me...the boys & their non-princess costumes. EEK.
Connor, the Unknown Phantom.
Those eyes...the lights fade in & out. CREEPY.

Riley, the Dark Skeleton.
Somehow the eyes lining up makes this mask even creepier.
Prepare for posting madness - I have been inspired like crazy this week!

Such a sweet card! I love how you improvised on the circle. I wouldn't have known! :)

The boy look great in their costumes! :)

THREE secrets... since you're nice enough to keep the recipient's age a secret, too! Love how you stretched the circle (must remember that) and the lift-up panel.
