Celtic Squares Background

Hi bloggers!  Next up is the Celtic Squares Background.  Some of you might have guessed it based on the feel of the Lottie die, but I have done a Celtic collection for this launch.  While I have tried to keep the backgrounds a bit more generic so they will work with everything, you will see more of a true Celtic style during tomorrows posts.  Shown here, you can see how this background can be cut into smaller sizes for more versatility.  Think backgrounds, borders, focal elements and even flowers!  If you like the look of this one, just leave your comment with your suitably noted alias or some other memorable note.  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely background die, I really like the squareness and the snipability but also as there does not appear to be a cutting edge I'm guessing that it would extend also.

A little late. Off party shopping for our Lottie's post birthday party as they were away for her actual birthday 😢 3yrs Sue ! June - Lottie is a name in itslf some people may shorten Charlott but to Charlie so I've learnt.
I loved this when I got my pre-launch email from JS (yes I look at pre-launch heads up) and thought how beautiful it was, my first thought was 'how long before we see samples with pearls added to every centre lol I'm sure they are ready to have their day here you couldn't resist Sue 😉 it's just gorgeous a true Sue Wilson award winning collection xxx

Marie P. from Longridge said...

Yet another great one Sue. A beautiful background the doesn't need a lot of embellishment. One of the lovely sentiments could be the focal point I'm sure.
All of your cards have their own personality, some speak softly and some shout I wonder if that is a reflection of how you feel at the point of creation.
Hugs.
