Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi bloggers!  A teal and white card for this week's giveaway.  You may recognise it as one of the demos from my shows in January.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Bed of Roses embossing folder.  Next I cut two of the Ornate Octagon striplets in white using both of the dies in the set.  I cut a white backing for them using just the outer cutting edge.  On teal card, I very lightly embossed the design then used it to cut around the inner design for both of the dies.  I glued the teal behind the open cut out and then added the white backing piece.  I mounted them both on foam and placed them to the edges of the card.  For the focal element, I cut the Daisy Cluster die in white nine times.  I glued them together in three sets of two.  I cut the matching flower die in teal then glued them behind each of the three sets.  I added Cosmic lacquer to the teal flowers and allowed them to dry overnight.  I sprayed and glittered the last set of the Daisy Clusters and added them to the tops of each of the three sets.  I arranged them into a wreath shape, then added 3mm white pearls to the centres of each of the flowers.  Finally, I added  my stamped sentiment across the centre.  I completed the card with a pierce mat, a teal mat and a final white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9 3/4" in size.  Leave a comment to be entered into the drawing to win this card.  I will draw a name and announce the winner on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Norah McPhee said...

This is a beautiful card Sue with lovely texture and dimension to it. The teal behind the flowers is just lovely but because of the white overlay with the sprinkles it mutes it down that bit. Although i don't have any of these dies yet i could probably make something a long the same lines as yours but definitely not a matching one. Thank you flower for your beautiful card and the inspiration that you give to try something different. My prayers, thoughts and hugs are with you and your family flower at this awful time.
Sorry i just couldn't start my post of with my normal happy or correct way as it just isn't appropriate so forgive the begining,

Sorry everyone. I've been AWOL as the migraines went into overdrive. Meds have been doubled but it means I can't read back on missed comments... Got to limit time looking at screens until I get over all the migraines I had in a short time. Feeling sleepy again so that's it from me before I drop off.

Sending big hugs to everyone regardless. I got lots of them so take what you need. Extra special hugs to Sue and her family xxxxx

Good evening dearest Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes,

You always pull a corker out of the bag for the giveaway and this weeks card is no exception. Apart from the fact that the colour choice is inspired, so fresh and clean, the overall composition of the card is fabulous and one which I will use myself in time. I love the ornate octagon striplet, the teal blue really enhances it's intricacy. The daisy cluster wreath is gorgeous also, sadly I don't have any of these dies but what more motivation do I need after seeing such a stunning creationxxx
I feel rather sombre today, as befits the circumstances, and my thoughts are generally centred around life and just how fragile it can be. I may be lucky enough to still have my own Mum but I know the sense of emptiness associated with the loss of a loved one and I hope that you find the strength you need be it from family or cherished memories to see you through this most difficult of all times. I realise that I have already expressed my condolences but I just wanted to re iterate that you have many friends on your blog who genuinely care about you and would rather you took the time that you need to grieve than to feel pressured by your commitment to the blog- it's not the end of the world if you need to take a break from daily posts, we will all be right here waiting for you when you are strong enough to return. There is no right or wrong way to grieve though, some find that sticking to a routine helps them to cope too but I just wanted you to know that whatever you decide in the near future you will be supported by your faithful followersxxx
You are in my thoughts Sue, as are your family. Love and hugsxxxxx
Cuddles to all my blog buddies too, hope you are all wellxxxx

Hello Sue.
My very deepest condolences on the very sad news of your Mom's passing. It is always a hard thing , but even harder when you are so far away I know as my family are all in the NW in the states It is wonderful that you went to see her so often. My Mom was one of my best friends and I still miss her but am so appreciative of all the wonderful times we had. Do take time..It is so important. Thank you for still sharing a beautiful card with us. Love and prayers

i hope that you can find solace in the fact that you spent so much time with her, probably a lot more than others that only live a few miles away.
take as much time as you need, it is important.
on a more mundane note. i love the white and teal combo. it works so well, hugs xx
