How do you like to go up in a swing?........

 I got a new cart today! It's the be-a-oo-ti-ful Victorian Romance (although Provocraft's 'Victorian' images look more Georgian to me!) I loved this girl on a swing image, and it brought to mind the Robert Louis Stevenson verse 'The Swing' so I thought that I'd incorporate it into the card. The scrumptious papers are from Tilda's 'Flowergarden' 12x12 pad. I actually picked this pad up from Croydon Hobbycraft last Saturday (we went to Croydon then on to London for lunch) in readiness for getting this cart. How sad is that??!! Obsessed, I know!
I cut the girl image twice, once from black cardstock, and a second more solid image from patterned paper. I paper pieced the frills on her sleeves, around her neckline and her petticoats from scraps of white cardstock before adhering the images together. I then backed the image with some aqua embossed cardstock trimmed by hand, then adhered it to a panel on the front of a C5 Z-fold card. I added a satin bow, WOC floral spray and a smattering of pearls to complete the front of the card.
I found the verse via Google, printed it out onto white textured cardstock, matted it onto pink cardstock then adhered it to an embossed panel inside the card.

Great card! I too can't wait to get my hands on this cartridge. I love the 'Victorian' figures.

Thanks for making me want this more,
