Thinking Of You

Hello crafters!  I started today's card by cutting the Triple Column Background into a piece of coconut white card.  I backed it with Arctic Blue foe a soft contrast.  Next I cut the Elsa background using Sky Blue for the top layer, Petrol Blue for the middle layer and Arctic Blue for the base layer.  I added a thin rectangular frame around it in white and added it to the middle of the card with foam.  I cut a Stitched Flag in white and seated the Thinking Of You shadowed sentiment on it.  I cut it in black and used a white shadow base.  I used the Wildflowers to accent the card cut with Arctic Blue on top, Petrol Blue in the middle and sky blue on the base with white leaves added.  White pearls were used as accents around the card and flowers.  The card was completed with white, Arctic Blue, and Petrol Blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

What a beautiful sight to wake up to, I just love the way you design mix and match dies. You always know which colour card to use to show each die to perfection. I'd love to see some of the European dies from a few years back mixed in with the newer layered dies, that's something totally different I wonder how that would look.
So a new week a beautiful start,and I hope your day starts equally as lovely xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, just such a perfect sample today, love all the variations of blue's you have used, and the very pale blue behind the background, at first I thought it was Vellum until I read the description. Thank you also for such detailed photo shots on all your samples, it really is appreciated.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
