TSOT 463 - Amazing Swan

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge 463!

The sketch is below and the optional theme (in addition to the sketch) is Make a Splash. 

I stayed very true to the sketch this time - I pulled out an old stamp set called Thankful for You. It has  a couple of swans and some related images so that allowed me to add in the optional theme of Make a Splash. 

The card background was random stamped using three images from the stamp set. I die cut a frame outline from Sapphire cardstock and filled in the triangles with white cardstock. That was placed on a Canary background. The swan, bullrushes, lily pad and flower were stamped and die cut and the waves were stamped directly on the background. Once the scene was together, I built the rest of my card based on the size of that piece. The sentiment was stamped on the same background paper and I added a dotted ribbon underneath. A few enamel dots were added and this card was finished!

Hello, Alyson! This is gorgeous! Those images are so perfectly stamped and die-cut that they look like something one could purchase, beautiful job! I like the shape behind the swan, so unique and delicate. Your colour combo is so pretty and I like this sketch too! Beautiful card!

aLISON! Girl, you are into the fiddly die parts now, aren't you, LOL. And you do them perfectly! I've had a quick catch-up and am just amazed at all the different various art you've made. Your doggie's too cute. Ok, I just received the most gorgeous card yesterday in the mail from you. THANK YOU! It's displayed in my art corner, it's very eye-catching, too! You are so sweet - it may take forever, but I will get you back! XOXOX
