Now onto this week's challenge which is a 'Theme' and we would like to see
Things that MoveThis could be interpreted in a variety of ways...an actual moving component on your card, so a pop up, a shaker, a spinner, a charm, a tag... we could go on...On the other hand your card could have an image of something capable of movement, so the scope for that is almost infinitesimal!
Ok, My thinking cap did not have to be on for too long... I had quite a number of choices. So here is what I hope will be the first.

In fact this was a first on several counts:
My first square card
The first time I have used scoring as an effect on a card
My first successful decoupage image
The first time I had use Pinflair Gel to create the decoupage layers
In the past I have attempted decoupage images, but they looked rubbish and ended up in the bin as I could not bring my self to use them.
After watching a couple of Create & Craft shows when Pinflair was used to create the layers (rather than foam pads) I decided to give it a go... I was so impressed with the result that I then did another Me to You decoupage image, and it too looked good.
In fact I am so proud of my success I even took a picture of the layers. My main concern was the depth of the finished card as if it was to be sent by post I do not know how well the Pinflair Gel would survive (does anyone have any idea???).
