As for me, I've made a peek-a-boo card for the challenge:

Here's a short video to better show you the inter-active feature of this card.  It's only 20 seconds long.  Warning:  it comes with music as I was trying to drown out some background noises...hee hee.

Cool, eh?  If you're interested in making a similar card, here's the link to the Peek-A-Boo Card Tutorial.
