Congratulations

Hi crafters!  I started this card by cutting the Triple Column Background die out of Old Rose card.  I cut it in half, took out an inch or so and reassembled it back into a square, adding pearls over the cut areas.  Next I cut the Basketweave background in white and added an old rose backing to it.  I cut a frame using the Double Stitched Squares.  I added the frame over the basketweave background and nipped away the excess. then added it to the centre of the Triple Column Background.  I cut a Beatrice in white and added a white backing and attached it inside the frame.  I used the Congratulations sentiment cut out of Old Rose on a white shadow backdrop and glued it across the centre.  I made three small scrunched flowers using the Petite Forget Me Not flowers and added them in opposite corners with white leaves as accents.  I glued it all to a white backing with a rose mat before adding my final white and rose mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size. 

I still haven't heard from all the winners of the blog launch!  Please scroll down to see if your name is on the list!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, the rose-coloured card shows up as 'coffee coloured' and looks lovely which proves (if we need it) that this design would look beautiful in lots of different colour schemes.
I do like the dies you have used and the reminder to use them in other ways. Hugs xx Pauline

Beautiful card Sue. I have lots of oblong backgrounds which I don't seem to use much now with making mainly square cards lately, so I must try cutting them down to squares. I so often forget about using them differently.

Hugs Helen xxx

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
A fantastic card again today and always so much to learn from your postings Sue.
The card shows on my PC as a beautiful pale coffee colour so when/if I get around to trying it I already have 2 colourways to choose from.
Have a great day and hope you are taking the promised rest Sue.
Hugs.
