Framed Swans Card

Hi friends, I have a card today I made with the new "Sweet Serenity" collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I started by layering 3 coordinating patterned papers from the "Posy Patch" paper collection.  I stamped and heat embossed the "Vintage Floret Frame" with gold embossing powder on dark blue patterned paper and cut with the coordinating die.
I stamped the swan image from "Feathered Friends" on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor paints.  Also added some glitter to the water.
Here is a closeup of the flowers, also heat embossed.
I covered the filigree metal corners with embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder to match the gold embossing on the edge of the paper and stamped frame.
I adhered the frame with pop dots for dimension.
Thank you for stoping by today.
