Simply Stampin' Challenge Theme Week - Regally Royal

The extreme storm front is in full swing here in Perth, Western Australia.  The winds are howling, and they are so strong they keep blowing the front door open.  A thunder storm has just passed through with huge wind gusts and heavy rain.  There has been a heap of clattering noises outside, but so far the roof is still on the house.  We still have about four hours to go before the storm front moves through, and as I will probably not get much sleep tonight I decided to make cards instead.  In case you a wondering I am using my laptop with the battery, not connected to the electricity.  We still have power but about 80,000 poor soles in the south west region of Western Australia are still without power, most of them have been without power since Sunday when the first extreme weather event passed through the region and the tornado hit the suburbs of Dianella and Morley in Perth.

This card is for the challenge at Simply Stampin' Challenge which is Regally Royal. I have made a swing card.  This is the first time that I have made a swing card and found it quite difficult to photograph it to get the full effect of the card.

All products are from Stampin' Up, I added a touch or "Royal" by adding a crown to the swing portion of the card.

  3. Again, another beautiful card for our challenges. The details of the pearls are just gorgeous. I made my first swing card with the framelits the other day as I love fancy fold cards.

    I hope you still have your roof on your house after all of the storms over your way!
