A little something just for you

Top Tip Tuesday has a fantastic challenge this week - moving parts ... basically something on the card has to move, open, pop up etc.  I love making interactive and mechanical cards.  So today I created this window card for either my mother or Neils' mother for mothers day later on this month.
This is the card with the shutters closed ...
when you open them they reveal a window and you can see through to the inside of the card ...
 and inside the card is a room scene ...
so basically the front of the card is the outside of the brick house and the window looks through to inside the house.
To create the primula blooms I die cut the individual flowers and then used applied an embossing tool to the back of each flower so that they curl and bend and then layered them.
I would also like to enter this into the 'anything goes' challenge over at Party Time Tuesday and Crafty Creations challenge - mothers day with flowers.
materials used - Kaisercraft avocado, coffee bean, mineral, olive card; Simple Stories 'family ties' pprs; Versa Color black ink; AnnaBelle Stamps 'squared posies', Hero Arts 'wish you were here' stamps; Memory Box small madison window and shutter, small flower box, primula blooms dies; Sizzix Tim Holz bricked embossing folder; Carl scalloped scissors; Acetate; Francheville journalling pen black; Kaisercraft pearls, gold rhinestones.

This Mother's Day card is exceptionally beautiful!! I absolutely love the moving shutters on the window and the fact that you've created a scenery that looks into the living room is wonderful! Such a perfect creation for our challenge and I almost forgot to mention that your detail on those little bitty flowers are excellent :)
Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday for our Moving Parts challenge.
