Little Stinkers Decoder Card

I started making a set of fun kid cards to do as a class, and then this adorable set was retired before I could ever teach it...bummers. I am going to share the cards over the next few days.
The idea behind this card is to have a hidden message that can be read with the little circle that is hanging down. The message is stamped in a light blue, and then stamped over a few times in red with the Speckle background to "hide" it. When the red cellophane is put over the top the red ink "disappears" and the message is revealed. I couldn't get it to show up in the photo, but it does work fairly well.

Stamps: "Little Stinkers" and "Speckle"
Paper: A Little Whimsy (TAC), Bazzill green and purple, black and white
Accessories: Scorpal and Scorbug, red cellophane, circle punch, coluzzle, purple scrapper's floss, button, and scalloped scissors
