Thank You

Hello bloggers!  I selected one of my favourite Pixie Sparkled background to use for today's card.  The background was created by using Teal Marine Pixie Sparkles on a piece of white card.  I cut the background into six equal sections and added mounting foam to the back and attached them to a piece of white card.  I used the Jewelled Scalloped Border and cut the die out of white card twice.  I nipped away the lattice part of the die, leaving the jewelled ends.  I attached them to the top and bottom of the background edges.  I cut the Thank You Block Sentiment in white and seated it on the larger white backing in the set.  I cut just the Thank you portion of the die out of a leftover piece of the pixied card and glued it on top of the Thank You Block sentiment.  I used the Pinwheel Flowers and made three flowers with glittered petals.  I seated them around the sentiment and added white leaves.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Happy Monday everyone x
This is a wonderful start to the week. It is a dark and grey here but this is bringing a beautiful bright smile to the day. Obviously the teal marine Pixied background has my name all over it. A wonderful blast from the past with the Pinwheel flowers accompanied by that stunning new border. This is definitely a ‘signature’ Sue kind of a card and does not disappoint at all. Thank you x
Take care one and all x
Sending you all positive thoughts x

Hi Sue,
I just treated myself to this gorgeous die as a Christmas present , but can’t wait that long to use it, so I talked myself into making this beautiful card. Thanks Sue for sharing.

A true Sue Wilson design, so pretty and elegant, combining new and old dies, reminding us to find the old dies and use them. How beautifully the jeweled scalloped border works with the
flowers wheel! The gorgeous background really shows off the beautiful dies. Love this card.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
