Swan Anniversary

 The other day I made a card that will be posted on June 1st for a DT project.  That card uses these sweet little swans and while I had them out on my desk, I decided to create another card using them.  As a sneak peek for you, the gingham oval was left over from that other card.  It made the perfect backdrop for this adorable swan couple!  I added a waterlily from the same set, I also stamped a trio of hearts (from the set) and covered them with some nuvo enamel drops.

Then I finished the card off with two little white pearls.  Nice and easy and rather quick.

Stamps: Pretty Pink Posh "Pond Friends" images; MFT "Essential Sentiments" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large"; MFT "Blueprints 12" stitched banner

Pattie's Creations--anything goes
Use Your Stuff #483--inspired by water (I die cut a little wave for these sweet little swans to swim in)
Creative Fingers #255--anything goes

Little Red Wagon #706--Flora or Fauna? (I used both; flora with the waterlily and fauna with the swans)
Krafty Chicks #665--all occasions
Crafty Catz #639--anything goes with the optional twist: add flowers
