Swing card...

Good morning, Blogland!  Hope you're all having a relaxing Sunday?!  I've been having a hop around Blogland recently to find some more blogs to add to my reading list and came across the lovely Norma at From My Craft Room...I know, you're probably all saying 'where have you been?!'  If you haven't visited her blog before, her cards and colouring are FABULOUS!  She made a tutorial for creating a swing card HERE which is so easy to follow that I decided to have a go and this is what I came up with...
...I used my Spellbinders Scalloped Square dies for the swing shape and some foiled cardstock that the lovely Carole (from our workshop) gave me...
...I needed to make an engagement card for a family member, so used the sweet Wee Stamps Love Birds freebie from Sylvia Zet, coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and paper pieced the heart with a small gingham pattern.  I created the flowers from my different sized daisy punches and loved both making them and how they turned out!  I added some Cheery Lyn Leaf Strip border leaves and pearls to the flower centres...
...Inside I created a panel with a nice verse on and a sentiment, cut with SBs Beaded Ovals...
...All the edges were inked with various Distress Inks and I finished with a couple of polka dot buttons.  I really like this card shape and will be having a go at some more in the future! 
Thanks to Norma for the fab tutorial that made me have another go at this clever kinetic card and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!  Hope you get chance for some craftiness this sunny Sunday and thanks for dropping in to see me!
Huge crafty hugs,
