Swan Die-Cut Card

Happy New Year everyone!  I can't believe Christmas was over so fast lol.

I have a card to share today that is a bit different for me.  My fella buys me Die-Cut Essentials mag every month and Januarys has this gorgeous Swan die-cut in it.  I took inspiration from a designer called Sue Hughes who did cards with this die and tweaked the designs to my liking.  I really enjoyed making this and found it made a nice change from colouring stamped images.  It's also nice to have a card ready for my friends birthday in February.
