 Hi there my crafty friends!  I just love these rose spray corners and think this card shows them off beautifully!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Daisy Circle to cut an aperture in the centre of it.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and added it over a piece of dusty rose card (from my stash).  I cut four of the Rose Spray Corners out of the same colour and glued them to the corners as accents.  I cut the Daisy Circle out of white card and glued it into the aperture opening.  I stamped my sentiment and covered it wit a sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut an oval frame for it and peeled the backing paper off and attached the frame then coated it with Diamond Sprinkles.  I used a Victorian Velvet Distressed marker and added a bit of colour on top of the glitter. I attached the sentiment in the centre with foam.  I added three small rose flowers to the frame of the sentiment cut from the Spring Foliage die set.  The card was completed by piercing a white mat layer, adding a thin dusty rose mat and a final white card layer.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  6 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all. Beautiful card, love it. Such a true sentiment
Denise congratulations on your first grandchild, it is a wonderful feeling being a grandma or Nanna which ever you are.
Steph,such good news for Tina,Claire and Toby, hope all goes well for them.
Elaine, I hope Mary is feeling a little better, they do seem to discharge people very early these days.
June Horrocks, hope you are feeling better soon, poor you.
Crewe Trish glad you enjoyed your weekend.
You too Diane, bet you loved your surprise.
I don't have a problem with the flying pink pigs, it's seagulls round here. My car, windows and even the walls get bombed. Ugh.
You are right Trish, if they put me in the car park they would also move the cabinets out there too. Do I feel got at, not at all.
Daily hugs to all,especially our poorly and missing friends. Have a good day everyone.

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, what a lovely card, the daisy die is beautiful, and so are the corner dies. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

The corners in dusty rose just don't work for me. Maybe they would have worked better in white on white. Or a lighter or darker pink. We can't all be wild about all of them. Never knew you could color glitter with markers.

How can it be Monday again?


Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

Great card Sue.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Another glorious start to the day, a beautiful sample alongside a beautiful sunny morning. I do love using the Daisy Circle, it makes such a pretty statement whether used as an apature or as a main focal, put together with these dainty corners, well it's a pure winner. Off seal and puffin watching today on a katamaran to the Farne Isles, a treat from my man as he's made this journey himself some years ago. Gloves and hat at the ready and a friendly chat with the Captain yesterday means should I get too cold on the journey they will allow me to warm up in the wheel house ☺ which is so kind of them. Just hope I don't get fired at too much by the nesting birds - hence the hat (anyone that has ever watched a program on the Farne Isles will know what I'm babbling on about) !!
So I will send you my daily love n hugs and hope you have a lovely day xxx

hollyberry said...

Really beautiful card today.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely card today, soft rose pink is such a nice colour to use for this sort of card and I like the corners, I agree with Donita that I would try white corners which would work better for me.

Pam reiterate all you have said, sounds like everyone had a good weekend, wish I could have got up to Doncaster it was a great Create it show.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Muriel Kelly said...

Help Sue and all
pretty card and thank you for the idea of colouring glitter with distress inks- something I probably would never have tried.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Lovely card. I really like the inset focal point but I'm another who would prefer a white rose corner.
Pam, I know about the seagulls too, if only visitors would stop feeding them! Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Good morning Sue
What a pretty card! I love daisy and corner dies! Thanks for sharing about colouring the glitter I've never thought of doing that.

Patricia Youdell said...

Morning Sue
Lovely card, and I love the colours. I too will have to try colouring over glitter
Pat x

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue,

Do I love this card?......Yes indeed I do, yet personally I would be inclined to use white on white for the corners. The soft rose is such a strong colour in your photo.
Never thought you could colour the glitter with inks. Oooh, that could be a disaster for all designers of coloured glitters if we all bought white or clear then inked it ourselves.
Hmmm, thought provoking.

Gentle hugs and healing prayers to all in distress, pain & discomfort. May your day become kinder to you.

Love 7 hugs
Cheryl xxx

Hi Sue,

Love that Daisy Circle die, it's gorgeous and incredible how much detail there is in the embossed Rose Spray corner dies, they would work even cut out of very dark colours.

Love the central part of this card but, like others, am not keen on the corners.

Hi Sue,
Lovely card - must get those rose corner dies.
Recessing the focal point into the aperture is so effective, I must do it more often - always forget!

Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love Diane G xxx
Pam echoing your comments today, yes it was a lovely suprise to come home to. We often used to say we could sit at our desks stark naked and as long as the work was done no one would notice! I hope they provide you with a brolly if you end up in the car park! 😀Xxx

Hello Sue,
As soon as I saw your card today I thought "Pretty in Pink"!!
Pam, it would be quite nice working in the car park today - but not in bad weather!!
Steph, enjoy the Farne's, at least you have a good day for it although the water may be a bit choppy. A hat is definitely a good idea!
Pat L, I can't believe that. They certainly seem to muck up their appointments.
Sharon, hope the op goes well.
Rosemary, sorry to read about your uncle.
Laine and Yvonne, missing you.
love to all

Beautiful card Sue and I love the Rose corners and the beautiful colour pink. Thank you for sharing this. Echoing Pam's comments today.

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

I cannot decide what I love the most … the aperture (never tried this technique. It’s a must try because it’s so effective), the colored glitter (I didn’t know you can color it) or the Rose spray corners. If you used them separate will create lovely details, but together create this beautiful card. Love it. Thank you for sharing. There's always something to learn from you.

Pam – Glad to see you can still smile about your work situation. You are a tough lady. :)
Elaine - I hope Mary is feeling a little better. Hugs to you all.
Rosemary - Sorry to read about your uncle.
Sharon – Hope everything went well at the hospital.
The two Princesses – Hope you are feeling better.

Hugs to all.
