This stunning new stamp set features a glorious spray of wildflowers along with some wonderfully heartfelt sentiments. It will be a 'must-have' on your shopping list this week! 
For this challenge, create a card or project that moves or opens in a non-traditional manner (FTTC224)! In other words, create a card that doesn't just open normally. Maybe it has a third panel like a tri-fold card or it has a greeting tag that pops up when you pull a ribbon! There are lots of fun tutorials you can try out. Here are just a few examples of some great card tutorials that will fit perfectly for this week's challenge:



Here is my challenge card:

I made a double slider card (for the first time!) I am never be a great card designer with different foldings so I always have to follow tutorials from Splitcoaststampers. Here is the link for the slider card :) I stamped the images on the two different panels and colored with Copic markers. I also adhered the butterfly that was punched out with the circle punch.


The rest of supplies : Memento - Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Classic White cardstock, Color Made Easy cardstock - Pistachio, Crocus, designer papers, Color Made Easy ribbon - Pistachio-Moss Green, flower button, kraft jute twine, Spellbinders die, circle punches, word window punch
