Two Little Dickie Birds

This is my entry for the current Polka Doodles Blog challenge:

The theme for this weeks challenge is Nursery Ryhmes.  Again all my original thoughts had been so wonderfully done by the DT members so I came up with the idea of the Two Little Dickie Birds! I thought that I would try and recreate this little ditty by making my birds 'fly away':

I achieved this by creating pull tabs and levers which are attached to the birds.  By moving the 'tweet' tabs up and down, the birds appear and disappear!  I had so much fun making this card!

All of the elements for this card were printed from the Polka Doodles - Not for the Girls cd.  Anyway I have to go as my youngest has just woken from a nap.  If you would like more info on how I made this just leave me a message and I will get back to you!
