Circle swing cards - and a free file

The idea of swing cards has been around for awhile. There is a video on how to make a square one manually here. SVG Cuts has some files for what they call "lever cards", and Sizzix has some dies for their "Flip Its". I have designed a similar card in MTC (using Basic Shapes) and would like to share it with you.
I used The Paper Company card stock (from JoAnn's) for the base (cut at blade = 2, force = 25), and paper from Recollections' Bold Basic for the designed paper (purchased at Michael's, cut at blade =2, force = 9). The swirl is not original to me, and I actually used the negative space because I liked it better. I obtained it from here. I am still working on the inside sentiment but I will probably be using this as a birthday card.
(I am not real happy with this photo because the lighting is so bad)

The MTC file is original to me and free for the next week using this link.  The bottom layer is for the card stock and the top layer for the designed paper.  I would love to see any cards you make with this design!

If you need an envelope, Lettering Delights has a hidden freebie on the download page. Just download any purchase (even a freebie from the month's freebies) and you will see the pdf download. Just enlarge to 5x5" and you have an envie for this card.
