Thank You

Hi bloggers!  It's a pretty floral card for today's offering.  I started by cutting a round aperture in the middle of a piece of coconut white card.  I added mounting foam to the back and seated it over a piece of lilac card.  I cut the centre of the Ivy Garden Background in white and recessed it down into the aperture.  I cut the Floral Melody Corner die four times in white and four times in black and shadowed each one.  I cut the matching flowers out of lilac card and glued the matching flowers behind each of the dies.  I added mounting foam to the back of each of them and attached them in each of the four corners.  I cut the Thank you mini expression in both lilac card and black card to use as a shadow.  I glued the sentiment in the centre of the card.  White,lilac and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I don't remember seeing this sample before, have I been on another planet, or is this the first time for this pretty delicate dainty beauty. What ALWAYS amazes me if that's the right word is that with just a change of colour scheme comes a massive change of the whole look but will always look gorgeous. The paler the colour the more delicate (obviously) ! But as you go darker more of the design of the die shows and the tiniest of detail, each little swirl or bud just sings and to me it's just brilliant how stunning your dies look no matter choice of colour scheme. Hope you are completely germ free and feeling great again xxx
