You're Wonderful

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I started today's card by covering a piece of card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and sprinkle Golden Onyx Aurora Flakes all over it.  Using a piece of Rubitscrubit pad, I moved the flakes all over the card, then used it to refine and remove the leftover flakes.  Next I used the Paulette Background and cut it into the flake background.  I added a white backing card to it.  Next I cut a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles.  I added the frame with foam over the background.  Next I used the Joanie die and cut it in white and added a white backing to it.  I seated it in the centre of the frame in a diamond orientation.  I cut a small circle frame using the Double Stitched Circles out of a leftover piece of the flake background.  I stamped my sentiment then added the circle over it with foam.  I attached it to the centre of the Joanie die.  I made three small flowers and glittered them, then added them to the lower portion of the circle frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. You're wonderful. This is wonderful. And our Particraft family are all wonderful.
Such a different Christmas day for such a lot of us but thank goodness we have technology, I have to admit it bought a lump to my throat reading that grandparents were watching their beautiful family tear into their gifts via the internet, the only way to assess all this is we are still in the position to do this with our families when thousands and thousands are still mourning- it's sad it's crazy its unreal, like a badly made sci-fi or cheap horror film.
This inspiration is the perfect way to start our day so " hi to our family hope you got through the day and felt the love you deserve, whatever your plan for today I really hope you can enjoy it, my heart goes out to everyone"
Thank you for helping us through Sue and we hope your day is a good day xxxx💖

Good Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
Here we are with Christmas day behind us and all the last minute things taken care of. I hope that all of you got at least some pleasure from the day and that many memories were made.
I hope your little dog gets well soon Steph. Just give him/her lots of cuddles
Today will be a day for thinking of what to keep and what to recycle (Oh happy day)
Blessings to all and Thank you Sue
Marie P.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the design of the card today but I am not so keen on the colour of the aurora flakes. This may be because of the way they have come across on the laptop screen though.

Hello Sue and all
Gold and white always look so rich, the gilding flakes are lovely as is the striped effect of the die, really nice card for so many occasions.
Well that is Christmas for another year, very very quiet but peaceful, I hope you enjoyed it as much as possible.
