Today's set is a lovely one called "Swans":


This set made me think of weddings, anniversaries, and even Valentine's day.  As such I stuck with a simple colour pallete of white, black and red for all of the cards.  












I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Now its time to hop along to talented Sue to continue with the hop. Or if you came to my blog first, click over to the Mark's Finest Papers blog to start from the beginning.  Our DT is so talented you won't be disappointed!  :)

Like how you used variety of hearts to showcase the wonderful Swans. Was watching Ellen the other day and she had Drew Barrymore on who has a book out with photographs that have heart shapes thru out.
