Start Each Day With A Song

Hello crafters!  Starting with a piece of white gloss card, I spritzd it with water ad sprinkled Midnght Blue and Purple Violet Pixie Powders all over it.  I covered it with cling film then let it dry overnght.  I cut a square of it to use as my background, then used the Scalloped Circles and cut two of them.  I added a circle cut from the pixied card in between the two Scalloped Circles.  Next I used the Double Stitched Circles and made a multi-layered frame.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame and attached it to a piece of white backing card.  I cut the Start Each Day With A Song in black and glued it to the side of the frame.  I used the greenery from the Hummingbird set and added it around the right side of the frame.  I added pink flowers as accents.  Two hummingburds were cut out of leftover Aqua Lagoon pixied card.  I added them across the top of the frame.  The card was competed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  

Just a quick note to let you know that the June Christmas Die Release starts here tomorrow mrning at 6am!  I hope to see you back here then!  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. Wow another beautiful pixie background. You must spend hours at a time creating these backgrounds. I am not surprised because there is nothing so therapeutic as watching these powders merge into beautiful colours at the touch of a spray button of water. A really lovely card today. Your humming birds 🐦 are the cutest little creatures ever. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
Please stay safe and well 🙏

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card and I love everything about it.
Christmas! Every year I promise myself I will start in January and avoid the last minute rush but it never works. Although I have enough Christmas dies/card/papers to make cards for the next 50 years I cannot resist getting something new each year so am looking forward to this year's launch tomorrow.
