Seven Swans A~Swimming ~ Double D Challenges

Do you enjoy joining in on card challenges?  I do!  One of my favorite duos is Double D Challenges hosted by Darlene Pavlick and Diane Hover.  I've worked with Darlene for a few years now and have loved her from the start.  She is truly one of the best team leaders I've ever worked with!  Diane is equally as wonderful and they're both always inspiring to me.  With that said, I'm excited to tell you that I'll be joining the Double D Challenges design team in 2020!

 To celebrate, I made this card for their newest challenge "12 Days of Christmas" part 2.

I went with the "7 swans a-swimming" panel for my card:

I used this beautiful swan from Quickutz.  It's an older die but the swan is so beautiful, it will never go out of style.  I added a festive wreath around her neck using some stamps and dies from PTI.  

I hope you'll take the time to visit Double D Challenges and join in on the fun.  There's always a prize up for grabs, not to mention the great inspiration you'll find there.

I'll also be entering this card into the following challenges:

May your Christmas be full of peace, love and joy.

Thanks for stopping by!
