Romantic swans

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world. Another sunny start to the day but thank goodness there is a lovely fresh breeze with it :o)
For my card today I have used two of my new Marianne die sets and for the first time, I actually did the embossing for the the anja die in the Grand Calibur. I normally do it with a ball tool but I am so pleased with how it turned out. I did the swans embossing with the ball tool but now that I have discovered it is so easy in the GC I won't be doing it by hand any more :o)


I cut and folded white linen card to 5x7, added the die cuts, tiny pearls and Woodware stamped sentiment and Bob's yer Uncle, that was all there was to it :o)
