Camera Pop Up Surprise Card

This is the card that I made for our son's 19th Birthday.  This is also the card that got a 'Wow' from husband who has a new found love of photography.  Our son also loves filming and is doing a Uni course which involves this very subject but in his spare time he loves to take photos.  

I have been wanting to make one of these surprise pop up cards for a while now and found a tutorial online.  Sorry I didn't save the link.  The wonderful camera image I found at Tiffany Doodles.  There was a gallery attached to these images and I used one of these creations to guide me as I coloured.

I added glitter rub on letters to create the surprise message to be found under the image when you pull the top tag.

(Sorry photos were taken at night time)
Dug out my most masculine Happy Birthday stamps to stamp a message on the tags.  My daughter did not think it went with the card but as I said to her....cogs were better than flowers.

Considering I only coloured three sections of this camera I was surprised that it took this many pens to do that.

Thank you all for coming to visit yesterday I really enjoyed reading all your comments.  Something I have missed as it is very rare I get a reaction from my husband - a once a year event.  It is nice to come in here to share my creations with other crafters and get more than a grunt.  :-)
