"Summer" digistamp

The second card for Digistamps4joy.com was made from their digistamp called "Summer". I decided to be a little ambitious and try making a 'swing card'. Well I got it right, but it took me nearly 3 hours to make this card from colouring the stamp to cutting out all the card pieces! The end result is quite pleasing and eventhough I'm not an 'orange/yellow' person (blues, pinks, and purples for me thanks!) I quite like the colour of this card. Luckily I had a whole packet of orange and yellow flowers on hand. I think my biggest concern while making the card was that the oval topper would keep floppnig down. I may have overcompensated for this as it is quite stiff to turn!
