Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Gabbie Swan Princess

So how are you loving all the new releases from Faery Ink this month?! I love them all! For my inspiration post this month, I am using the gorgeous Gabbie Swan Princess. I was a bit stuck for ideas on colours and in the end decided on a monochromatic colour combo with a touch of orange (for the swan's beak and feet).

I do think swans are really very graceful birds and spotted two the other morning on my way to work, eating the grass near the roundabout not far from the end of my road. There is a little stream that I cross just before the mini roundabout, so I guess they had swum down that to the fresh patch of grass for breakfast! Shame my phone was in the boot of my car otherwise I would have stopped to take a photo.

Anyway here is my card using another of my new templates from Dutch Doobadoo...
