Hi bloggers!  I started today's card by making a background using the Pixie Sparkles.  I tapped Beyond Blue, TealMarine and Fuchsia Rose Pixie Sparkles all over a piece of white card.  I allowed it to dry completely, then cut a piece of white card using the Large Circles Background and then added the pixied card behind it .
 I cut a thin frame using the Slimline  Essential Frames and added mounting foam to it and added it over the background.  I cut the Noble Thanks out of some of the leftover pixied card and mounted it on the shadow backing, then added it to the card with foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Reading all the comments over the last few weeks I am totally out of step (which is why I have not commented) but I am really looking forward to a true SUE Wilson white on white card.

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. What a lovely card. The colours are so relaxing and calming to the eyes and mind. And as always you give us an option ... Because a different sentiment would give us a clean and simple card for any occasion. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.


Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Hi Sue and everyone, sorry im here a bit late today. Better late than never lol. Im loving the colours of todays card and the circle background is growing on me as I'm imagining more and more it can be used for. Great card too, could be used for any sex, just change up the colours.
