A "Springy" Surprise

One of my favorite card bases to work with is the Kraft Die-Cut Cards & Envelopes from Close To My Heart.  These 6"x6" cards have a scallop flap that folds over the front of the card, and the Kraft color is a nice contrast to some of our background & texture papers. 

For this card, fun paper from the Footloose kit was used to decorate the front.  The sentiment is from the popular Card Chatter-Birthday stamp set, and is embellished with Durables Studs on the tag. 

The funnest part of this card is the surprise inside, which "springs" out as you open the card.  Attached to an Adhesive Spring is the second part of the sentiment.  These self-adhesive little springs are very easy to use and also easy to over-look when flipping through the Idea Book.  They are shown on page 123 and the cost is only $2.95 for 6 springs.   

All stamp images and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
