To A Dear Friend

Hi bloggers!  From bright colours yesterday to black and white today!  Just keeping you on your toes! LOL  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the straight die from the Dotty Streamer die set along both of the side edges of the card.  In the centre, I used the outer decorative die from the Mallory die set.  I added black card behind it for contrast.  I cut the Mallory die in black and then added it with mounting foam.  I cut the To A Dear Friend sentiment in both white and black.  I shadowed it and then glued it to the rectangle centre die from the Mallory and added it to the card.  Using the Cosmos Flower die set, I cut the solid part in white and added a black outline on top.  I added three flowers around the focal element, then accented the, with white leaves.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Absolutely stunning a real Sue Wilson star of the week so far. Loving your close up shots Sue really brings those points to life. And in real life your inspiration would look even more amazing if that's even possible. Enjoy your day whatever you're doing xxx

Hello Sue, well a total contrast from yesterday's card, however, it's stunning. The streamer die is fabulous, the flowers sentiment and Mallory dies are all beautiful. Thanks Sue for this lovely inspiration xx

Hello Sue.
A gorgeous card again today. I love the black and white contrast and I agree with Sharon that if you took away the flowers it would be fine for a man. Actually I just had a thought, Replace the flowers with clocks or cogs and it would become a male card.
Thank you Sue.

Hello Sue
Beautiful card, dies and the sentiment.
I love black and white cards although I am always worried that the recipient might not like them.
However your card will look equally as good in other colours.
The Cosmos flowers are so pretty.

Classy black and white design. I am liking the size of the holes around the outer edge of your Mallory die and the contrast of the black and white to the flowers. Thanks for sharing.
