 Hello crafters!  Today's background started with a piece of white card and I sprinkled Purple Violet and Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders all over it.  I spritzed it with water to activate the powder then allowed it to dry.  I cut the Mosaic Ray Background in white and added it over a piece of the pixied background.  Using the Double Stitched Squares, I made a wide white frame.  Using the Double Pierced Square die set,  I added a thinner black frame to the inside of it then added it over the background with mounting foam.  I cut the Christmas Angel 2021 out of white card and added a white vellum backing to it.  Next I added the angel to the background with foam mounting tape.  I cut the Peace die out of the leftover pixied card, then added black shadow to it then glued it to the top of the frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2" in size.  

Don't forget to check back here later in the afternoon as I will be psoting the winners of the July Die Release Blog Launch.   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I really love the mix of beautiful colours for the background but the design just for my liking isn't the nicest you've inspired us with, I know lots of blog friends will love this but for me - it didn't reach 'the spot' should I pretend to love it or be my truthful self, bought up to be honest so I'll be proud of my upbringing, there's very little you do that gets me like this lol. Have a lovely day everyone and please keep safe and sensible xxx

Good Morning Sue and all.
I've been waiting for the Christmas Angel and here she is.
I have a special little box to hold your Christmas Angles and having used the 2019 0ne on the notification of my Granddaughters death last year (The 2020 one wasn't here yet) I will always think of MY SUE when I see your Angel Cards. I love the colours on the one now in front of me and thank you Sue.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a stunningly colourful sample today, love the Angel too. I must tell you that when I first opened the blog and saw this, the first thing that came into my head was a girl dancing with disco music and lights...........daft I know but that is what came into my head now there is an idea for a card.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Morning Sue, so lovely to see the beautiful Christmas Angel make an appearance. Your Angels really do herald Christmas. Love the background colours.

Owlish said...

I love your card today fantastic colours your Christmas angel is a lovely die but in my opinion I think she needs something to make her more of a feature because seems to lack focus.

Such lovely background for the beautiful angel!

zoemo said...

Why have I never paid attention to the mosaic die before, what a background. And is it my imagination or does the 2021 angel have a little sass about her?!
