A very fine swan indeed

When I read that the theme at CD Sundays was Songs From the Movies, before I'd had a moment to think I found myself humming The Ugly Duckling from the film Hans Christian Anderson. I have no idea why - it has to be well over 50 years since I last saw that film. But did I have anything on a CD suitable to illustrate  it with?

Luckily, the gorgeous Design House CD "Water's Edge" has a design set featuring a swan and cygnets, so I've used the pyramid decoupage and matching backing paper from that to make an easel card. The decoupage sheet included a border which I trimmed down and stamped a sentiment on to create the raised strip for the top of the easel to rest against.

  2. Lovely card. I used to love Danny Kaye and there are lots of songs in that one film along that could inspire a card! Thanks for the memories!

  3. It is funny what pops into your head sometimes. A great card Jane. I love the angled pyramage.
    Talking of Danny Kayue now reminds me of the wonderful ditty about 'The Chalice from the Palace' from The Court Jester. I have the DVD.
    Thank you for joining in our sing song.
