Polka Doodles Challenge 13

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is to make a card with at least 2 folds.
There's plenty of ideas and inspiration from the fabby Polka Doodles DT and I've taken my inspiration from the mega talented Kath and made a swing card. Never made one before so it was certainly a challenge for me, but so pleased with myself that I've mastered it now, with the help of several tutorials on youtube and a template from Split Coast Stampers lol!

I've used the Polka Doodles Sugar Birdies CD for the backing paper, and a Melissa Frances rubon for the sentiment, some faux stitching and added some ribbon and a butterfly charm. Difficult to photograph well, my photos are a bit wonky, it looks much better in action! Tfl xx

  9. You've done a fab job with this one - I've never had a go at a swing card myself don't know if I have the patience 'cos it looks fiddly. Great choice of papers too - I love the Sugar Birdies CD.
