The Clipart Fairy - Challenge Number 1!! And Simply Create entry

I found out about The Clipart Fairy after buying one of her Book a easel cd. Which if you haven't seen it, quick click on my link and head over, it's brilliant.
For her very first challenge she has set the theme of Love is in the Air, where you must use her products only and include a heart and a semi-circle.
Well you know when you have an idea and no matter what's going on you just have to do it, well this card was one of those things.

Over on Simply Create blog you have to use the following design board for inspiration:

Here's my card:

The idea for the card came from a wedding invite I was shown by one of my best friends Kath.
The image in the middle flips so shows the image on one side and the sentiment on the reverse.
This card took many many hours to figure out but I am very pleased with the result.
The image is coloured with my copics and is mounted on the brown flipper card.
The sentiment was printed and then the two hearts were stuck on.  They were left overs from a card I made the other day. I then cut a 9cm circle in the PP and a 10cm circle in brown on my cricut.  They were cut in half then trimmed to fit on the sides of the cards.
The card is finished as usual with card candy.
When my hubby and I were saving for our honeymoon he sold all his fishing tackle so we had spending money so when the idea of using the nice tackle sentiment popped into my head I immediately thought of him.
I hope he likes it.  He better had it seemed to take me forever to make.

Great card Hazel. I've never seen one with a flip round bit like that so well done on making it. Thanks for joining us at the Simply Create challenge.

Love your dogs. In the past we've had a yellow dog, then a chocolate bitch and now two little(?) black pups.
