Best Wishes

Hi crafters!  This one is a really easy card, especially if you need something quick but still elegant!  I started with a piece of slate grey card and used the Brambled Rose embossing folder to add texture.  I cut the Magnolia Corner twice out of white card and glued them in opposite corners.  I used the extra flower die to create several dimensional flowers out of powder pink card.  I glued them in place atop the flowers in the corner dies.  Next I cut the Joanie die in white and glued it to the centre of the card.  I used the Double Stitched Circles and cut a small frame and added mounting foam to it.  I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of white card and used Spun Sugar ink around it to add a soft halo to the sentiment.  I seated the circular frame over it and trimmed away the excess card.  I added it with foam to the centre of the Joanie die.  I added a small pink flower to the lower portion of the frame.  The card was completed with white, slate grey and powder pink mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  9" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I agree that at first glance today's inspiration is very elegant, everything comes together beautifully and because your pretty Magnolia corner is cut in bright white cardstock it stands out and it's delicacy is highlighted beautifully as is Joanie, grey pink and white, what a beautiful combination of colours.

Marie P. Albeit a weird kind of day I hope your 89th birthday was as lovely as it could be love.
To allow that pop in .....

STAYING SAFE KEEPING CRAFTING ❤ xxx

Good Morning Sue and all.
A gorgeous card to be sure. I love the mixture of colours each of which compliments the others
I might have a similar die that would work and as I'm not good at making flowers I do have some that I bought a long time ago.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Love.
Marie P.

Thank you Steph.
