Move it, move it, move it...

Are you singing along or do you know that song? Well - this week at Crafty Creations we're creating projects that MOVE! And boy...it really had me stumped - I thought of lots of different things but nothing was clicking; I finally just sat down in my craft room with an idea, then went to look for a sketch that fit with my thoughts - yeah, I have an addiction..it's called SKETCHES! I used an older Mojo Monday Sketch (#241).

I have lots of pictures and I used lots of new stuff, lots of ink, some sewing, some glossy accents topped with rock crystal glitter and here we go:

Card closed

Card front turned so that it reveals the sentiment, "friends until the end"!



So...what do you  think? I love that the top spins open to reveal the inside; I thought it turned out pretty cool! I used lots and lots of distress ink:  Spun Silk, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany, I also sponged on some VersaMagic Pixie Dust. The flowers are from Verve's Brighter Days; the dies for the flower and the leaves were just released too. The cute little butterfly is from Doodled Occasions, also from Verve.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll get your cards moving and join this super fun challenge over at Crafty Creations!

Hugs,
