Swan Love Pyramid

CONVERTED to Oil Painting by Pattie
Today's creation is my DT card for Pattie's Creations Challenge #49 with the theme of 'Animals or Insects'. I chose the image titled 'Swan Love' and made a Pyramid card. I had my sister, Pattie, convert the colored image to an oil painting effect in her Adobe Photoshop program. It's a favorite effect of mine. The DP is a free image from Free Vintage DigiStamps. It had color in it, but I converted it to a Black and White.
We have a wedding coming up in November, so I'll save this for that occasion.
