Fly Butterfly.



'Spring has Sprung' over at Try it on Tuesdays
This is the theme of our next challenge.
We would like you to make a card/project  that has  something that 'moves' on it.



Please pop over to see what we have all been making and get all the details.
There is a fabulous monthly prize to be won at the end of the month.

You may have guessed by now that the moving part to this card is the butterfly.
I fixed it onto a piece of folded card, like a concertina  under the butterfly so that it wobbles  and springs up and down.
This was then attached to a  2p piece and inserted into the cut out channel to make a slider.
I must admit this was quite a fiddly job, but it seems to have worked.
All the card stock I used is from Hot off the Press. I  layered up the sentiment with cut outs,  the  slider trim was a border punch. The flowers  etc all came from the same card stock.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.
