Rotary Hello

Good morning!
Or should I say, good afternoon?
I've been a busy little crafty bee this morning.
I got an idea for a card around midnight
last night, but I was so tired, and my
eyes would just not focus
so I didn't want to attempt it.

This morning when I woke up,
I jumped out of bed and headed straight to my
craft table to put my idea into action.

Here's the finished result.

It all started with that bottom print.
It's actually filled with different jump rope chants,
but the "upward, downward, all along the line"
reminded me of a telephone.
And I hadn't inked up the little Lawn Fawn phone
yet, so I was itching to use it anyway.

To assemble my panel, I took a tip
from Card Queen Extraordinaire
Kristina Werner (love her!)
and adhered my strips of patterned paper
to a sheet of regular printer paper
and then trimmed them down to size.
You can see how she does it here.

Hope you all have a fabulous day!
