A Swinging Summer!

haha... I'm going from one season to another!  Yesterday was Fall - today is Summer : )  You never know with me hee hee!

At Paper Romance, Amy challenged us to use a metal embellishment on our card.  I went with easy and decided on a charm!  Believe it or not, this card was not as quick and easy as I would have liked.  You know that some cards are just like that!  Some go together with little effort and some are b i r t h e d !!!

This is Ally Rose.  I placed her on a Swing since the weather is so nice and she loves to be outside!  Don't ya love the cute little flower she's holding?  It matches the cute little charm!  Beautiful bow is made with my Bow Easy... gotta love that little tool!

Images were cut out and Ally Rose was adhered to the seat.  After stringing the cord through the top of the ropes and scalloped cs, everything was glued down.  Here you can see that only the top of the rope swing is adhered so that Ally can swing freely!

Image is colored with copics:  Swing - E35 E34 E33 E31 E30; Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Overalls - B97 B95 B93 B91; Flower Y15 Y13 Y11 E35 E34.  Did ya notice the sparkly pink scroll?  It's one that I showed you how to make on Monday.  You can see the tutorial Here.

What a gorgeous card Lori. Your colours match perfectly and your image is so cute. I love the use of the string and it has made a perfect swing for her. You have put a lot of work into your card and it shows. The addition of the charm makes it perfect for our metal challenge this week at Kaboodledoodles. We look forward to seeing more of your lovely creations in our future challenges.
