Swirly Fathers Day Cards

I'm not one for making more than one card at a time usually but as it's nearly Father's Day and I have 3 cards to make (Dad, Father-in-Law, and husband from the children) I had a bit of a craft session today and got them all done.
I started out with the sketch from Retro Sketches this week 

I turned it on it's side, bought the banner to the front and swapped the twine for a swirl and ended up with this.

I thought for the next one I'd swap the grey card for some tissue paper that I'd stamped some scribbled polka dots on in some green, grey and light blue inks.  And rather than doodle around the die cut swirls I placed a second die cut in white underneath to make them stand out a bit more.  I also added an extra layer of grey card as a background to the blue paper.

And finally for the third one I added an extra die cut swirl and changed the colour of the banner
