Thinking Of You

 Good Sunday morning all!  I started with the Stripes Embossing folder and embossed a piece of white card for texture.  Next I cut the Filigree Artistry Scalloped Border die out of Blue Dusk card.  I extended it so it was a bit longer by lining up the die and cutting it a second time. Working from the reverse side of the die, I pushed up all the decorative cuts and added small white flatback pearls to the centres of them as accents.   I glued it to the left side of the background.  I inked the Hydrangea Stampcut with black ink and ran it through the die cutting machine.  I used Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Forest Moss and Crushed Olive Distress Markers to colour it. I added some glitter to the centres of all of the flowers.  The Hydrangea was added to the bottom of the Scalloped Border with mounting foam.  I cut the Thinking Of You out of Blue Dusk card and added a black die cut shadow to it.  I glued it to the Stripe background in the upper right corner.  The card was completed with white and blue dusk mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are    7"  x   8 3/4" in size.   All for now,  Sue x

Beautiful colours. Those teeny pearls and the glitter in the middle of the centre of the flowers are so subtle but add the perfect finishing touch.
