Harvest Swan

Morning! Hope your all well. I'm feeling very tearful today, I've just had my last phone call from my son and he is now on a plane to Afghanistan for 6 months, my head is all over the place and its taking all my effort to concentrate on this post but its also a good distraction. Praying they all come home safe and sound. 
Ok, so its new release day over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and there are 4 fabulous images to choose from, I will be showing 1 today and 1 tomorrow but to see the rest pop over to the store or go to the challenge blog and see the beautiful creations the design team have come up with.
This Image is called 'Harvest Swan' isn't it gorgeous? Perfect for birthdays, weddings or any celebration. I have coloured it with copics and used my crystal effects on the balloons and flowers. The papers I've used are from Stampin Up and I've done a patchwork effect with faux stitching, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 Remember you still have another week to enter our 'Things with Wings' challenge over at Little Miss Muffet, hope you can join us.

The green-orange combination is strikingly beautiful and I love the layout with the ribbon off on the side! Great colors and the shinny balloons really add a nice cheery feel - love it! *Hugs
