Art Impressions "Southern Style" Challenge

Over at the Art Impressions Blog this week is a "Southern Style" challenge.  They are releasing a new line of stamps with a Texas theme.  When I think of the south I think of  barbecue, ribs & pork, so for my card I pulled out my AI Mini Front & Back Elephant & Pig set.  I also have the matching dies, so these are really easy to color and die cut.  I decided to make a Flip It card, since I haven't done one of these for a while and used my Sizzix Circle Flip It Die for the base of the card.  I then cut out a piece of pattern paper from the Recollections Bold Basics 8x11 pack, trimmed it to fit.  I also cut out a circle for the flip portion of the card using another pattern paper from the same pack.  The sentiment In Pig Years is from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I trimmed it down into sections, so I could fit it on my card.  On the backside of the card I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the AI set called Out to Lunch.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions Challenge #167 - Southern Style
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make It Colorful
Through the Craft Room Door Challenge - 9/1 - 9/7

 When you hold both sides of the card & pull it flips the center circle to the backside.

Hope you enjoyed this fun interactive card!
