Want to Swing?

I just love to swing! Do you?  I just saw this wonderful image and knew she had to be up in the air!  Today there is a new wonderful challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle and it's all about construction.  I've never really created these kinda cards so here's my effort!   It was so much fun that perhaps I'll be doing more of these construction cards.  There's so much inspiration at the Card Crafter's Blog.....it's enough to spur anyone on!
This week we are being sponsored by the incredible Milk Coffee Designs.  The randomly drawn challenge winner will receive their choice of 3 Milk Coffee images! Then....get this....The wonderful designers at Milk Coffee, will also provide one image to each of our chosen Top 3!  Don't you want to play?
                                       
Well for my card I've used Lisabeth at the swing by Milk Coffee.  I've coloured her with my prismas, fussy cut out the image and hung her with some fine lace ribbon.  To create her airy scene I made a window with my Creative Memories oval cutting tool and then added some fun cloud paper to the background.  I figured that the base would look best as grass so I brought out my EK Success border punch and used it to create some lovely softness.  I thought it needed more dimension so i added an extra fold in there to hold the grass apart.  Then I added a touch of dark inking around the edge of the blue sky and some lovely felt daisies from my stash.  I saw this wonderful sentiment in my TLC folder and thought that it would be perfect for this scene.  I cut out the sentiment with my CM oval cutting tool as well.
Would you like to see more angles?  Here you go.
And another.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see me and perhaps I'll see you at the Card Crafter's Circle!

Jennifer, this is one FAB design. That clear window gives the card such depth, and all of the elements are delightful. You really out-did yourself with this one, girl!
