Wishing You Brighter Days

Hi crafters!  Another All In One card for today's offering, but this one is a really quick and easy make!  I started with a piece of white card and embossed it with the Symmetry In Play embossing folder.   Next, I used a piece of Pixie Powder card that I made using the Midnight Blue Pixie Powder.  I cut the Wishing You Brighter Days die out of a piece of white card on top and the pixied piece below it.  The white card cut the complete die cut but the pixied sheet only cut the outer edge.  I cut the die again out of black card, then used that as a shadow behind the white die cut.  I glued them onto the pixied oval, then added mounting foam and attached it to the embossed background.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 
6 1/2"  x  8"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Good Morning Sue and all.
I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. The 'pause' button was pressed a few times and then I but started to think about the blog and here I am. I'm sure that we all wish for brighter days and eventually they will come. I love the way you have presented the message and will put it onto a card for my eyes only in BIG LETTERS.
Thank you Sue for all you do.
Marie P.
KEEP SAFE
