Countryside

Countryside is the challenge on Flourishes this week.  I started the card with a French Flair scalloped die from Cheery Lynn. The oval is a spellbinder label 10, Parisian accents for the corners.  The stamp set is Swan Lake from Flourishes and I colored it with copics and the sky is weathered wood distressed ink. I added some pretty flower soft to the little flowers to give it dimension.  This card is also for Joan's Garden challenge this week, corner embellishments, green and blue and flowers and an oval.

Both these cards are beautiful! I have the With Sympathy set on my wishlist but I have the swan stamp but would not thought to use it with this die cut. Thank you for another idea to use items I have on hand! Your coloring is beautiful on both of these.
