Especially For You

Hello bloggers!  It is back to the Pixie Powders for today's offering.  I started with Scarlett Mist and Sun Yellow Pixies and sprinkled them all over a piece of white card, then spritzed with water.  Once dry, I embossed it with the new Quilted Pillow embossing folder.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to cut two different sized frames for it.  I added mounting foam to them both and added them to mybackground, one large one around the edge and one smaller one for my sentiment.  I added the Especially For You sentiment in the centre in white.  Using the Petal Pocket flowers, I made three flowers and added them in opposite corners.  I used a piece of leftover background and cut the centres for the flowers to match.  I used the Lace Edged Leaves as accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue and all Particraft lovers that pop in today.
What's to say about this gorgeous inspiration other than I've got the Fruit Salad zing in my memory right now lol in the UK we had and still have a suckie chew (candy) called Fruit Salad with the fruitiest taste mild but beautiful and the background resembles the moreishness of these sweets / candies. How many non words did I use? Think I have lockdown delirium.
Sending love and smiles all round...
STAY SAFE KEEP CARING KEEP CRAFTING xxx ❤
