Fluttering Butterfly

The weather must be bad here I don't think I have ever posted twice in one day before. I wanted to try and make an interactive card for the current challenge over at Hero Arts, After seeing this discussion thread by Susan I had a go at making a DIY Wobbler and attached it to my butterfly. When you touch its wings or even the card they flutter. I am really pleased with this effect and shall definitely be having another go.

The flowers are coloured again with my distress markers and then touched up to highlight the flower centres. I then just added the pearls and sentiment.

This card is also for the CAS-ual Friday First Birthday Challenge.







 P.S.Don't forget to go to this post for my 200 follower's giveaway.
