Party Time Tuesdays Masculine Birthday Swing Card

This is my third post today.  Please scroll up to see my Midnight Madness card and some big news from Sugar Creek Hollow.

 
It's Tuesday again which means it's time for another Party Time Tuesdays challenge.  This week...Masculine Birthday cards!  I learned how to make a swing card from this months wonderful sponsor, Lisa Tedder from Tuesday Techniques.  The papers and images are from our weekly sponsor Dancing Princess Designs.   This card is for my Father-In-Law.  His initials are G.M. so I used some of the Dancing Princess alphabet letters.  I added acrylic dots over them to give them a 3-D effect. 

Here is the opposite view. 


I used rub ons for the sentiments.  The cute arrow is from Dancing Princess as are the plaid and tan papers.  The polka paper is from my stash. 
Here is the closed version.  The cute star and journaling cloud are also from Dancing Princess.
