A Re-enactment

I made this card the other day and wasn't going to post it because it's a re-enactment of a very random you-tube video.  But then yesterday I found out that I made it into the Paper Craft Gallery Idol Top Twenty and it turned in to a re-enactment of me!!!!!  So first the video:

I could watch this video daily and still not get tired of it. Ok, maybe I have watched this video daily and still not gotten tired of it.  "The maple-flavored kind?" along with the "AHHH!" at the end have become conversational phrases between my DH and myself.  So now that you know the video, here's the card:
"Ok," you're thinking, "what does this have to do with finding out you're in the top twenty?"
Because this is the inside of the card:
(My AHH was of course a good-if-not-a-wee-bit-overwhelmed AHH, not a you-fed-it-to-the-cat AHHHH.)
I copied the shark pop-up from Robert Sabuda's pop-up website (a website about pop-up books, not about internet pop-up ads.  You should definitely check out his website and his books!) into the Silhouette studio and edited the mouth to get rid of the teeth.  The ears are the shark's fin.

The next challenge is DIY embellishments, which has my brain on overdrive.  Voting begins Monday and by the looks of the other top twenty cards, I've got quite a lot of competition, so I'll definitely be asking for your help.

The maple-flavored kind of help, of course.

LOVE the video... I'd share it with my dog-loving brother, except he never denies his dogs anything, so he wouldn't get it. :P

Isn't it awesome having that fun shorthand with someone? I knew I had to tell you this: my hubs set up our new wireless connection this weekend, and the network? As you wish. And the password includes bacon. Possibly too cute? Maybe.

Oh my gosh...we joke about bacon in our family all the time and love this video! We are always buying bacon books or cards! this is just perfecto!
