Passion For Promarkers Challenge #397 - Make a Kinetic Card

Hi Crafters,

It's the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers and we are making Kinetic Cards this week.

So anything with movement in them and using your Winsor Newton Markers of course.
We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps who are offering 2 digital images to the winner.

I decided to go for a box card construction and use the pretty Fairy Swing image with her swinging between the branches of the trees. I reinforced the tree die cuts with two of those wooden coffee stirrers. 
I changed the dimensions of the box from a square to a rectangle to accommodate the width of the image and trees without making the whole thing huge!

...and here's a close-up of the gorgeous image and if you tap her gently she really does swing back and forth.
