Thinking Of You

Hello bloggers!  I started today's card by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Art Deco Shells embossing folder.  I used spray glue to cover it then coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz for a bit of bling.  Next I cut the Ava die in white.  I backed the centre section with Royal Blue card, the backed the entire piece with a black card backing.  I cut the Lexi die in white then nipped it in half and used the two pieces at either end of the die and mounted the entire piece onto the background with glue.  I made two dimensional flowers using the outer dies from the Passion Flower die set and covered them with Iced Snow.  I seated them to the left corner and added Curly Ferns and leaves from the Petal Pocket die set as accents.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flag die and added it across with foam.  Royal Blue, Black and white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. This is beautiful. If I'd started a card with the art deco shell folder and finished it off with a beautiful floral element and it looked like this I'd be so pleased and happy. I do love and enjoy starting my day like this thank you.
Enjoy your Friday ☺ xxx

Hi Sue
Oh wow this is a real beauty!
The royal blue really pops with the black behind it and the little bit of sparkle adds an extra special touch.
Jake is going away on Sunday for almost 2 weeks. This would normally be an ideal opportunity to get my crafty head on but this weather is playing havoc with my energy levels! Is it wrong of me to wish for Autumn??!!
Happy Friday everyone x

A fabulous combination of dies and colors that make a lacy but stunning card. What a beautiful flower that I would never have believed came from the Passion Flower backing if I hadn't read it here. Love all the sparkle.
