Anniversary Swans


I have an anniversary card to share today, made with a limited design Gina Marie Designs swans die. I added a little Copic color to the eyes and beaks and placed it on a stitched oval (GMD) that was then embossed with a CB Cross My Heart ef. The "water" was done with a SNSS die, while the sentiment was done with a SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp. The white pearl cardstock "frame" was cut with a SU! top note die, then embossed with a SU! square lattice ef, while the card base was embossed with a CB swiss dots ef. I added some swirly vines from a Cheery Lynn flourish mini die, and added some matching flowers done with a SU! mini punch, adding clear gemstones to the centers.

I'm sharing this over at the Snippets Playground week #252 because the entire card was made from snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday!

Carol

The colors are so soft and pretty and you just have to keep looking at this card because there is so many pretty patterns and texture to look at. I especially like the look fo the hearts behind the swans, tfs!

It is just stunning, and in this time of jewel colors, it is so nice to see a beautiful pastel! I love all of the textures and especially love that you used your snippets.
