My mojo has gone AWOL ~ AGAIN!!!!

So I settled for an "easier" Tilda to colour!

I like to move it, move it.......

Good evening,
The title of my post has taken me back a few years, 
we had that song at our wedding disco in 1994 !

This week at MDUC we'd like to see something that moves on your card.
Well this sent some of the DT in a bit of a panic ~ Me included, LOL
But it really doesn't have to be too complicated . . .
It can be a moving tag or even a swinging charm.

I have made a wiper card, you can find the tutorial here 

 When opened, a sweet butterfly pops up!

 It's really quite simple to make and I've kept the embellishments fairly low key too.
Sorry for the poor photos, couldn't get the lighting right !

Hope you can join us,
