Christmas Bird

The challenge this week at Isabella's Sketchbook is to make a card with something hidden.  I struggled with this because I had all sorts of ideas but for the longest time nothing wanted to stay hidden - things kept popping open.  Finally I decided to hide a message behind the image and once I figured out how to hide it and allow it to be pulled out but not let it fall out I was a happy camper.

You must use an image from Isabella on your card and you have the chance to win 2 digis of your choice from  her store.  Check out the work of the other design team members to see the fun ways that they have hidden something.
