Slider for Mom

We just had our monthly Fancy Folds class, and one of the cards we made was this double slider card. It's got an extra surprise when you pull the out slider on top - another slider comes out of the bottom! This card was the inspiration, but I wanted to keep it a standard A2 card size, and a little less "busy".
This one is going to Mom, who just had her third chemotherapy treatment (of eight). The shot they give her to boost her white blood cells makes her ache horribly, and the pain killer for that has undesirable side effects, too.  I hope the "surprise" she gets when she pulls the tab brings a smile to her face.
