Daring Swing Card

This was going to be my masculine Monday card, but life got in the way yesterday.  It's the week of Thanksgiving here in the USA and I braved the storm and shoppers to get food for my family. We've had flood watches along with lots of wind and rain.  Thankfully our house is on a slightly higher elevation, so we are fine here, but being out in the weather yesterday was not fun!  I didn't sit down until after 7pm last night and never did get my blog post up.  Thank goodness y'all are ok with me missing a day here and there.

I've got more pictures for you if you scroll down, but this card is best seen on the video below.  This video was filmed a few weeks.  If you are viewing in your email you may need to go to my blog to watch this.

It's kind-of a good thing I waited because now I get to use this card to play along with the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I have another Fancy Fold card to show you later this week.  Actually I have a 3rd card I'm going to try to make.  Perhaps I should just make this fancy fold week... hmmm... except there are a couple more challenges I want to participate in and I'm not sure I can make them all work together.  We shall see. 
Here is the card again, closed.
