Miss You

Good Sunday morning all!  I selected Cobalt Blue, white and black for the card colours for this one.  I started with a piece of Cobalt Blue card as my background.   I used the border from the Treat Yourself Cupcakes to add white borders to the top and bottom edge of the card.  I ran a strip of  white pearls on each outer edge as accents.  Next I cut the Sophia die in white and backed it with Cobalt Blue.  I cut three of the inside die from the set in white.  I used one on each side of the Sophia die in the background and used the last one for the centre of the card.  I backed that one in black and added A multi layered Double Stitched Octagon frame to it in white.  I cut the Miss You die twice, once in blue and once in black and shadowed it then glued it in the centre of the card.  The card was completed using white, cobalt blue and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

As hard as Sophia works, you never see her looking anything but crisp. I was amazed that as complex as this looks, it’s only Sophia, a border, and the sentiment. Without cutting anything in half, except the pearl string.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Sue. How deep and luscious is Colbalt Bluetooth, I have a new un-opened pack just pleading to be used.
Oh my word Sue, I know that you know Sophia inside out and upside down but how you've layered and placed each piece to give the end result is just beautiful. Every little swirl and curly qew is detailed so sweetly. A gorgeous border, a detailed Sophia and a sentiment all put together that says Sue Wilson. Have a beautiful day xxx

Hi Sue
What a striking card. The cobalt blue is such a fabulous colour. Sophia is such a gorgeous die - so pretty.
I have been on holiday in the Isle of Wight for a lovely lazy week and the internet connection was terrible so the ‘Miss You’ sentiment is very apt. Need to review all the cards I have missed.
Happy Sunday everyone

I knew what cutting die you have used to create this card before reading the instructions because Sophia is spectacular in any color but white highlights her elegance and beauty. Is Cobalt Blue a lovely Color?Definitely. But for me, Sophia is leading the show.
Thank you for sharing.
