A Peek a Boo Card!

Evening crafty friends!

I've got a peek a boo card to share tonight that I got from Paper Wishes.
Or should I say I got the template and paper from Paper Wishes.
Warning! It's rather a difficult one.
I'm the copy cat queen and can usually look at something and figure it out.
This one, not so much.
It's taken me 2 days to figure it out and put it together.
But overall, it came out pretty nice. (Thank you Lord!)

Inky Chicks: Senti is in the inside of the card (scroll down)
Tuesday Throwdown: Flower, Sparkle, Embossing

The glitter paper in the middle (by Dazzles) is actually holographic purple which changes color as you move it. The black flowers are also Dazzles which gives it a raised, embossed feel and look.
Flowers are by K n Company.

Don't know why pictures make purple look blue, it's not. I've noticed it does that on TV too.

I've seen a few different peek a boo cards, but I like this one the best because of the opening aperture, which is also what made it a royal pain to put together!

I had to make the opening flaps a little wider than what it called for because the points kept getting caught in the center window. Worked like a charm!

I had to reinforce the opening aperture flaps with thicker paper so they wouldn't tear from opening them..

                                ...and the sentiment reveal.

Hope you enjoyed takin' a peek.
Thanks for stoppin' by and to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
You're awesome!
