Week 38 - Polkadoodles - something hidden inside

As you probably all realise I love the new
Polka doodles Cd Sundae of Seasons.
 It's my turn to set the team challenge this week!
I'm looking for a hidden element/ something inside.
I have created my card using one of the very
lovely Papermanis mini aperture Box card kits.
It's tiny compared to my usual A5 card at
only 10cms x 10cms.
But I really enjoyed this dinky project.
The only addition to the images from the cd are
Doodlebug orange velvet brads
2 eyelets and lush Laura Ashley ribbon (Thanks Keryn!)
and some crackle glaze.....

So what are you hiding this week?
Come share with us at Polka Doodles
