LIM: Things that move!

Well I can’t believe how long it’s taken me to get my entry sorted for the Less is More challenge this week.  It seemed so simple….Things that Move.  I have anything with wheels and the whole animal kingdom to play with but I’ve been fixated on making a moving card!!  Alas…it wasn’t to be.  But Sunday, being a new day, I’ve been hit with the inspiration stick…..and the googly eyes came out!

DSCF0736Yay!! I’ve made the little owls using the Two-step Owl Punch from Stampin’ Up! And the colours I’ve used are Crumb Cake owls with Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Tangerine Tango chests. 

So as I was putting this together, I had another idea to make my card move….I added a paper spring behind the flying owls!  Sorted.  Owls that fly and googly eyes that move!

And now I’m happy Smile.  Enjoy your Sunday afternoon.

I’m also entering this in the following challenges:

Simply Stampin’ {Punch it Up!}
The Spotted Chick {Krafty Thursday – used a little bit of kraft Smile}
