Playground Party Animals & A Colour Throwdown

I have a lovely collection of Dustin Pike's awesome digital images & decided to put some to good use making a Never Ending card.  This was such fun to make (& to play with).  You essentially have four "card fronts" to cycle through.  Here is my version:-

There are lots of tutorials available for this type of card, mostly for 6" square cards.  I adjusted the measurements to make a 5.1/2" square card.

I have combined two challenges that I haven't entered before to create this card:-

Love those party animals!  :)

Card Components:
Cardstock:  SU Taken with Teal, Pear Pizzazz (close to Celery), Express-It White
DSP:   Mostly SU (some retired), teal & celery grungy spot pattern from Kaiser
Stamps:  All Dustin Pike digital stamps (Zoo Collection, Freebies & Miscellaneous)
Other:  Copic Markers, White Glaze Pen

Hi Helen!
I have made this "neverending card" once ... but it was much smaller ... and so quite fiddly to make. This is fabbo ... do you have a tutorial site for this size?
Sorry haven't popped by recently ... but (as you probably know) my dad had a heart attack 2 weeks ago ... it is school holidays ... my son turned 13 yesterday ... and my eldest daughter is in labour as I type! I am excited about my 1st grandchild ... but it is a long hard labour and I am a bit distracted.
