Best Wishes

Hello all!  I have been in this pink and silver mood lately; there is just something about these colours together that sings to me!  I started at the bottom of the page and cut the Triple Best Wishes die out of coconut white card.  I used the negative piece and glued it to a piece of silver card.  Next I cut a larger piece of white card and used the decorative die from the Brussels die set and cut it out in the centre.  I backed it with pink card.  I cut a thin strip of both the pink and the silver card and added to both sides of the card as an accent.  I cut the Happily Ever After die out of silver card and backed it with white and cut the centre out of it.  I stamped my sentiment (from Phill Martins set) and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I placed the Ornate frame over the top after peeling the backing paper, then sprinkled Diamond Sprinkles over the sentiment.  I mounted it in a diamond orientation in the centre of the decorative cut out.  I added mounting foam to the entire piece then added it above the Best wishes. I tied a bow from some silver ribbon from my stash, then added a Sweetheart Flower cut from pink card and edged with silver.  I completed the card with a white pierced mat, a thin pink and silver mat and a final white layer.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

The most beautiful colour palette and collection of dies I have to say. I don't have any of your newest collection yet but I'm forever hopeful, and my list continues to grow and grow. So until the day arrived I will sit and oogle over your beautiful inspirations.
Hoping your day is full of more stunning creations and love xx

Morning Sue (normally this is 'stupid o'clock' for me, but my husband injured his knee yesterday & woke me up @ 4.30am to help him to the loo. Now guess who went back to sleep & who didn't????!!!). Anyway, I digress - back to the card!!!! I love pink & silver too. It was my niece's wedding colours last year & I made her a card to match. This one is stunning. What die did you use for the faux stitching lines on the 2 vertical strips pls? I just love the effect. Thanks once again for more fabulous inspiration Sue xxx

Pretty card Sue. Love silver and pink together. I'm making baby blankets in silvery grey and pink for my oldest granddaughter who's due to give birth a baby girl next month. I can use the same colours to make a card now that I have some antique silver cardstock.

Hello Sue
I love this card will definitely use this colour combination in the future but don't have the right shade of pink at the moment. I am busy saving for my trip to the NEC in July hoping there will be plenty of CE products, my list keeps getting longer.

Bejay Roles said...

Morning Sue,
Stunning card today, Sue. Pink and grey make a lovely pairing don't they and it's a wonderful anniversary card for anyone :).
Pam: glad you got the sunshine I sent up to you...it's pretty grey down here this morning and it looks like it wants to rain. Maybe that's why the council has finally arrived in the street to change all our windows...nothing better than a downpour when you have nothing but a giant hole in your rooms lol.

That's a colour combo I have never thought of using, I really need to get out of the ruts I get myself in, just because I love the blues, lilacs and turquoises it doesn't mean other colours aren't lovely. Nice card Sue, whatever the colour! :)

Suebak said...

Love the colours used for this card. The silver looks grey which I really do love. I have found it is difficult to get a true mat pale grey (which can be used for pebbles, rocks, stone wall etc). It is also difficult to get a true midnight navy.
