Gnome sweet gnome interactive card

A sliding and a spinning element to this nearly broke me, but I made it through lol.
I have two video accompanying this card as it was a very long proces.
In fact video number two was still 40 minutes or more and I had to speed it up so much I couldn't do a voiceover anymore, I couldn't keep up!, so sorry :-(

What I could do it split it up even more and to part per part in a video, if you want that, let me know.

The images are from Lawn Fawn (gnome sweet gnome and shedgehugs) and I colored them with Spectrum Noir makers.
The flower/grass border is from Craftemotions (grass flower border), the little grass patches on the bottom is Marianne design (LR0360).
I stamped with Memento tuxedo black on Neenah Solar white cardstock and used the Memento black marker to go around the edges after I cut them out.

The slider portion is cut by hand, I don´t
have a special die for that, I did look if a banner die would work, but I had none that skinny, and I didn´t want it really chunky.
The bee spins because it´s on a perler bead through a hole.

I cut the bee out with a circle die as I wanted it  to be big enough to  swirl and those antennas are impossible to cut out, I´m sure. I colored it to match as best as I could the background paper.

I diecut the grassy flower border again from white card and colored them with my markers and glued them on top

I´m enterig this card into the Lawnscaping challenge that is "calling all critters".
All two responded.

I had such ambitious ideas about those grass patches sliding away to reveal two kissing hedgehugs, but they're too small, so I tried to attach the grass things from gleeful garden, meh...still happy how this turned out to be a gnome watering a little flower.
