All The Best

 Hi bloggers!   I started today's card by cutting the top die of the Tina set into the edge of a piece of coconut white card  Next I cut the second layer out of Ocean card four time and lined them up underneath the edge with each of the four top cuts.  I added a piece of black card to cover the back and act as the bottom layer for the border.  I cut the Jocelyn die out of Ocean card and backed it in white.  I used the outer dies from the set to make a thin black frame and glued it on to the Jocelyn die.  I added mounting foam and seated it in the centre of the card.  I used the All The Best Shadowed sentiment cut in black and added to a white shadow and added it to the middle of the die cut with foam.  The card was completed with white, Ocean and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Oh wow - striking. Ocean is a really eye catching colour. That background is quite dramatic - fab x
I am itching to get my hands on Tina (amongst others). Sunday will be the day of reckoning - will my wishes be granted?!
Looks like we are in for another day of sun and blue(ish) skies here in cultural Croydon. I’m off to the dentist to get a crown fitted
Happy Tuesday everyone

Hello Sue
Lovely colour and card but too large for me, I still haven't mastered envelope making. Good luck at the dentist Yvonne.

Hi Sue (not Due) like yesterday's start to the comment )!!
Your inspiration today is a real popper - the Ocean card with the black and coconut white the way they all fit together happily through the collections of chosen dies, a real eye popper, a really big smile and if a card was capable of dancing then this would do the biggest happy dance, a really happy popping sample, thank you. Hope you find your happy dance today too ☺ xxx

Beautiful post and I think the black just lifts it enough to make it a very striking card. Think that was what was missing, for me, from yesterdays post.

Great card today, Sue. Suitable for those difficult men too! I must say that I think the shadowed sentiments are such a good idea for those of us who struggle with dropped shadows.
