"Thankful for You" Swan Lake Thin Cuts card

Hello.  I wanted to share another of my cards from my September card class.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

The papers used were all from the "Swan Lake" paper pack (I told you I loved this paper).  The images are from the "Thankful for You" stamp set.  I purchased the bundle that included the coordinating Thin Cuts as well.  The Thin Cuts are run though a die cut machine (I have both a Cuttlebug and a Big Shot).  It's a quick alternative to fussy cutting (which, those of you who know me, know I love to do), but for classes, this is a bit faster option.

Pretty cute, right?  I love to have some dimension on my cards and it was easy to do with these images.  I just popped up the swan's wing and a flower with some foam adhesive and added a couple sparkles and voila! 

Here's a look at the "Thankful for You" bundle.  They come packaged together, so you won't misplace one or the other.  And the thin cuts come on a magnetic sheet, which is awesome.

I'm entering this card in two challenges: 
The "Swan Lake" challenge over at the Between the Fold Challenge blog, HERE.
And this week's Color My Heart Color Dare challenge, HERE.

As always, thank you for taking the time to stop by.  See you soon!
