Here's the Design Team:

Cathy C  

For my project today, I pulled out some of my favorite K and Company designer paper to pair up with today's featured set before stamping the swan in memento black onto vanilla card stock then coloring with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.

Once the coloring was finished, I stamped a border background, die cut the swan before adding some matching punched K & Company die cuts popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
