Swing tag card..

Happy Saturday all..

Started this card this morning after seeing the lovely sketch provided by Bev for the new challenge over at


so cut the image out with an oval surround [like in the sketch] and started colouring.
Added finishing touches with my newly filled E43 copic marker and disaster strikes…
big blob of ink all over..
that will teach me to fill it up full to the brim!!

Luckily it was on the outside lines
and there was no way me throwing this image away and start afresh,
so cut it out and added it to a tag,
then imagination took over and cut another 2 tags
to make this swing tag as the centre feature 🙂

Happy mistake after all I think!!


The papers I’ve used are FancyPants ‘Botanical’
and the sentiment strip comes from the coordinating tag sheet.
Used the MS valentine lace heart border punch
and used the offcut hearts as little embellishments
[paper is double sided, so had the choice of blue & pink]
The tiny tags by  the ribbon are made with my new SU! punch, they are soooo dainty!
The flower is made up with Marianne design die cuts
and as the challenge over at


is ‘Make your own..’ my card fits in nicely there too.


Thanks everso much for looking and any comments you might leave,
Have a wonderful Bankholiday weekend!

Big hugs,

Marlene x
