Spring has Sprung!! Something that moves - Try It on Tuesday Challenge

Well this fortnight we are asking you to include something that moves on your project. I decided to make a double slider card and although I have made them before from a kit I decided I needed a bit of a refresher. I found this great little utube tutorial from Lesley Oman and it was so easy to understand I decided to CASE it and link in to my post so you could see how it was done.
For good measure and for a spring feel I used flower and butterfly stamps - well we live in hope!!

Here is the card when the slider mechanism has been pulled out:

I have to say this card nearly went in the bin, not because it was difficult to put together but because I couldn't get the colour scheme right. It started out pale pink and grey but was far too wishy washy - adding a bit of blue and some worn lipstick perked it up a bit and it looks much better. I have included some 'waxed' leaves with my flowers - they crack up nicely to give a random vein effect. These ones were made from kraft paper and I really like the way they turned out.

Anyhow we'd love for you to join in this fortnight's challenge and to pop over to Try it on Tuesday to see what the DT have been up to - there are a few crackers there I can tell you!!

Exciting bits - Our sponsor this month is Genuinely Jane Studios

Boring bits - please follow the rules!! Our challenges cover any kind of project but we do ask that you stick to the theme and link only to 5 challenges in total. Unfortunately to be fair to those that do we can't include you for selection for Top 5/Prize Draw if you don't follow the rules.
