Swirly Spinner

Last night was the September Inklings Cyberstamp, this month hosted by Lin Mei. This card was for the second challenge, to create a spinner card. Like many of the other Inklings, this is something I have thought of doing for quite some time and never got around to it, so it was great to have it on the "to do" list. I decided to use Priceless and So Swirly together again, and I am so happy with how this card came out I may just use it for Shaelea's birthday card! The colours were supposed to be ones from a Kristina colour challenge that I missed, but once I got creating I forgot that she had specified Very Vanilla and I had used Whisper White... oh well!
The idea with spinner cards is that part of the card spins along a track. Unfortunately, my pictures don't really reflect that... I didn't even attempt taking an "action shot", but I failed to realise that the butterfly was pointing in the same direction after it's bit of a spin!

no action shot required to see the beauty and elegance of this awesome card! was it really easy to make? i feel kinda inspired to make one now - but a little intimidated because it looks kinda hard.... Beautiful card Carol!!
