not just another butterfly card

hello! i decided to take part in challenge #17 at wee memories (WMC17). and the challenge this time was to make something using butterflies. i had just taught my son to say butterflies in sign language, so it has to be a sign, right? :)

i used a monochromatic color scheme (all purples - for some reason purple and butterflies go together for me!), and then i added some muted brown twine for the bow.

anyway, in order to make my butterfly card unique, i decided to make the wings flap! (now, please excuse me, i'm not hip on the terminology i used for the 'wing flapping' mechanics), but there's a pull tab at the top corner of the card. and when you pull it and push it, it makes the wings of the butterfly flap :) how cool!

so that's my butterfly card. enjoy!
