A Birthday Swan!

Hello Stampers, Family, and Friends!
I used another older Color Throwdown Challenge for this Card!
 I liked the colors and decided to use them!
When I first saw this Stamp Set I swooned!
I loved this set from the get go!
It is available in the New 'Occasions Catalog'.
I have only seen a couple of these in 'blog' land...I have a feeling
this Stamp Set is one of those sleeper sets.
 An overlooked Stamp Sets...It took me till now
to put some ink on this Stamp Set!
I will have to make more cards!
I will use it to make a few Anniversary Cards!
I saw a card, using the 'mirror' technique,
with the 'swans' facing each other!
I have to try that one! When I do, I will Post!

Here is a picture of the Color Challenge:
(I really liked the 'scarf' in the picture too)!
Here is my Card:

Here is the inside of the card:

Here is the card with it's stamped-to-match envelope!

I used the NEW 'Watercolor Pencils' that are also in the
'Occasions Catalog' (pg. 24)
These 'pencils' are great!
You can use them 'as is'  OR
You can use your 'Blender Pen'  OR
You can use your 'Aqua Painter'!
I used my 'Blender Pen'!
Do not overlook these 'Pencils!
There are 13 Pencils in Stampin'Up! Colors!
