Things that move


This is my card for the LIM challenge this week.

Things that Move
This could be interpreted in a variety of ways...an actual moving component on your card, so a pop up, a shaker, a spinner, a charm, a tag... we could go on... 
On the other hand your card could have an image of something capable of movement, so the scope for that is almost infinitesimal!

I chose to make a waterfall card which is a moving component



 & put on it flowers (move in the wind), a butterfly, 



a cloud (moves across the sky) & a bird.


I finished with a swirl stamped straight onto the card, topped with a punched butterfly in the same 12x12 double sided paper I used for the waterfall.

I'm really pleased with the way this turned out :-)
