Penny Black Suspension card

Here's another creation I made for World Card Making Day and the challenges over at In Love With Stamping (a UK stamping community). Their challenge was to make a card that moves; I chose to make a suspension card, because the middle part can spin. (And because I only know a few techniques to make a card move.)

I've never made a suspension card before this, so I'm happy about how quickly I was able to put it together. I usually have to mess up a few times with new techniques. Even cutting out the green paper with the decorative scissors, I did it in one go. I did have to color the mouse twice, but that was a quick mistake to fix.
