Kathy has set the dare over at Daring Card Makers Blog this week, here is what she has asked us to do:

Getting in a Flap
I'd like to see cards with flaps this week. Little flaps that you lift up or open out to see a secret "something" hidden behind or bigger flaps that form part of the actual card. Maybe even little birdies with wings that really "flap" As long as it's a flap that lifts up from your card it will count - just flat images of a bird or butterfly flapping it's wings won't!

 I used an Elusive Images stamp over a Distress Ink background simply layered up with different cardstock.  Eyelets hold two different coloured ribbons which untie to reveal...

the message inside, another Distress ink background, this time spritzed with water, another Elusive Images stamp fo rthe foliage and a Studio G sentiment stamp.
