Elegant Swan

I made this card for two Splitcoaststampers challenges: SC279 and CC279.  I tweaked the sketch slightly by using a Spellbinders lattice border for the back panel and a Spellbinders lattice pendant for the front panel.  For the color challenge, we were to use Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, and Cameo Coral, all soon-to-be retired by Stampin Up.  I used Lovely Lilac and Basic Grey's Wisteria pad, which is similar to Gable Green.  For the Cameo Coral, I colored the dragonfly in a similar color.  The stamp set used for this card is the recently released, "Our Side of the Pond" by Mark's Finest Papers.  This set contains a swan, turtle, two frogs, cattails, and several sentiments.  Very versatile!
