SweetStamps Monthly Challenge

Hello again-
Hope your Tuesday morning is off to a great start.
Today at SweetStamps, it's time for our monthly challenge.

This months challenge is:
Flip Flop (Swing) Card
I have only made this card once before and I really loved the way that card came out, but I thought it was a little too big.  You can check it out HERE. So this time around I did scale things down a little!! :) 
I found a cut file at the Silhouette Store, which worked out perfectly.
I am so pleased with the results of my card today!
I love the colors and so very cute Baby Bear stamped image, which is paper pieced, using the same Teresa Collins: Tell Your Story paper, that I used throughout the card. Do you see that intricate die behind the bear?
That is SweetStamps newest and greatest items.  It's their SweetCuts Die: Mini Medallion.  These babies cut like butter....The piece just fall out after just one run through the machine.  Now I LOVE that.
This is the other side of the card when opened.
I used a beautiful sentiment called, Taking a Moment.
I added two flowers, which again are part of the new SweetCuts Dies:  Mini Flowers 2
Here is a close up of my paper pieced Baby Bear and part of the medallion.
So there you have it, a Flip Flip A.K.A. Swing Card. 
You can find a tutorial HERE.
Really hope that you will take the challenge this month and join us.
