Swan Birthday card

I made this one for my Mother-in-law. I figured that if I used Art Nouveau again...that'll be 2 times...I'm on a roll...that cart was worth it now...Right? I really have to say that this cart layers so easily. Once I decided on the swan and chose the papers...it was super fast to put together. I pulled out the glitter again and glammed it up...love how pretty it is. I know that my Mother-in-Law will love it. She saves all the cards that I make...just like my Mom does. Thanks for dropping by my happy place... Lee-Ann :)

Gabrielle wanted to stop by each of the blogs that commented on her card to look at them and say thank you. We both think your swan is just stunning! Gabrielle's favorite part is the sparkle, and mine is the sponging :) TFS
