Pop-Up Twirl Card

Hi everyone!
I hope this Thursday finds you all well. I found this adorable tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers yesterday and just had to give it a go. This card is a Pop-Up Twirl card. The tutorial can be found here.
The mechanics on the inside of the card (picture below) show that when the card is opened the middle panel with the I'm Yours heart on it twists. You create a pulley system - it is so fun!
The main image on the card is very simply put together - an embossed hearts panel with a stamped heart image from The Stamp Barn. A bow and nesties labels 8 were used to complete the card.
If you click on the tutorial be sure to watch the video as it shows the card in motion and definitely helps with putting the card together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. It is a short post as I have some clearing out to do as we're having our water heater replaced with a new energy efficient 'green' one. The room is filled with boxes of 'stuff' (which I have to say is not mine!!) but still need to come out the way to make room for the men to work! Hopefully it won't take too long.
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day and thanks for any comments that you may leave!
