Sending Big Hugs

 Hi there my crafty friends!  I selected a piece of white card and embossed it with the Rose Bed embossing folder.  I used Wisteria Matt Chalk Polish over the top of the embossed card.  I used the diamond border from the Decorative Border die set and cut it in both amethyst and black card.  I offset the two colours of the border then added a white backing to it and glued it to the lower portion of the background.  Using the Cosmos Flowers, I cut three flowers out of Heather card, then added the outlines to them cut in Amethyst card with a black card shadow.  I added black centres to all the flowers then attached them in a group to the side of the border.  I used white leaves as accents and cut the Bauble Branch in black and added it as well.  For the sentiment, I used the Sending Big Hugs cut in both Amethyst an black card.  I shadowed all the words then added them to a white shadow backing piece.  I added it to the top of the card with mounting foam.  The card was completed with amethyst, black and white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

While I like the card the colour immediately brought back not so happy memories. This used to be my school uniform, purple & I hated it! Thank you Sue for the inspiration.j
