You're Wonderful

Hi bloggers!  I have a pretty diagonal card to share with you today.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it using the Dot Matrix Pinpoint embossing folder for some texture.  I cut a piece of aqua card the same width and used the Cepheus Triple Gemini die edge to cut  a diagonal edge to the card.  The die was used twice to create this edge.  To create the focal element, I used the Maldives die cut in white as the baackdrop.  I cut the Seychelles die in white and layered it on top of the Maldive die cut.  I stamped my sentiment then cut a frame out of aqua card using the smaller die from the Seychelles.  I seated it over my sentiment and adhered it in the centre of the card.  Using the Exquisite Poppy die, I cut several out of white card covered with sticky adhesive sheet and glittered the die cuts with Diamond Sprinkles.  I seated the flower on a bow of thin aqua satin ribbon and added some Lace Edged Leaves as accents.  I cut a butterfly from the Butterfly Background die set out of the same covered card and glittered it and added it to the top right corner of the card.  Aqua and white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue to cheer up a dreary Monday. Love the whole thing.
Tina, caring thoughts and wishes for you and the family,
Elaine I hope Andrew is still feeling good.
Tina and Peter caring hugs for you both.
Marg, hope the migraine has gone, awful pain.
Sharon, your poor daughter, you must have been so anxious, hope you are both on the mend, good news about the knee.
June, you are almost there, you are doing great.
Karen, I thought it must have been family here to drag you away from the grandchildren so close to Christmas and I totally agree with you.
Hugs to all on the blog, especially our poorly and missing friends.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. What a beautiful, pretty, delicate card. Monday is a day that so many dread, how many times have you heard "urge, another Monday another week" but NOT here, another Monday and the start of another week's gorgeous inspiration from you. This will sound absolutely barmey but that's me, this is the bridesmaid of the wedding party, the colours you've used, the floral element and the 'frilly' look diagonal skirt border (hem) just brings the subject of a warm summers day wedding to mind, and that's why you're wonderful as sometimes your work brings us a story at first glance, then we scroll down and see the intricacy of it all, what a way to start the week, couldn't think of a better way.
So for making me smile first thing I send my usual morning hug to you and hope you have a great day xx

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
Lovely card today, the aqua and white together are a lovely combination, and with the poppies really pretty.
Pam - hope you are well and counting the days off to the Christmas break.
June Smith - keep up the good work and you will be running soon.
Well Peter is still struggling with what to drink and eat. Made him a meat pie and and mashed potatoes, carrots and green beans for tea, he ate it and a short while later gave it back. Two o'clock this morning asked for Apple juice and Kellogg's variety pack, needless to say didn't have either in.
A week free of doctors and hospital appointments so I should get my Christmas cards finished and posted.
Love and crafty hugs to all

Dear Sue, Thank you for posting every day. I look forward to seeing it, like hoping for dessert after dinner. And you come through! Just spent the entire weekend making Christmas cards. Now only to write, address and mail them. How do people do this and also go to parties and church events and put up trees and take care of kids and decorate the house? I can barely make it to work and back. Anyway, thanks for taking our minds off Christmas for a bit and putting them on spring.
Love from the U.S. state of Rhode Island,

Hi Sue, a beautiful card for what has otherwise been a dull day. I love aqua and white it is so clean and fresh. Normally I prefer symmetry but I love the diagonal cut on this card and, of course, the poppies and the wee butterfly - all gorgeous.
