I spy with my little eye.....

....something beginning with T!

It is a telescope card but you wouldn't get it without this picture.....

This is it closed.....
And this is it open....

It is attached together with brads and basically the only thing you really need to remember is to place the second layer upside down so that it will open the same way up as the bottom and top layer.

I have used;

Spellbinder nestabilities dies Classic square and Classic square scalloped.
The stamps are Marion Emberson's Build a tree and Birthday kisses plus the sentiment is Hero arts Anytime messages. 
The little butterflies are the left overs from my Pop up butterfly Martha Stewart punch.
I've used white liquid pearls in my flowers...the reason I haven't used bling or pearls as normal is the telescope mechanism works better when the card is as flat as possible. 
The distress inks I have used are Walnut stain, Shaded lilac and Peacock feathers.
The brads and ribbon are from my stash.

I love the way this opens and closes and it is a fine change from a card shape.  I took inspiration from the lovely Su Pennick. 
That's all from me today I have my parents arriving shortly so looking forwards to spending some time with them.
