This weeks H2H challenge

It is supposed to be an item for/related to kids.
I made this explosion box card last night at a team meeting.
I plan on giving it to my daughter if she makes the tennis team!

The top picture is a side view, the middle picture is what it looks like opened.
The last picture is the front of the card.
It would be fun to put confetti in the middle so they would get a real surprise!
