Best Wishes

 Good Sunday morning all!  I selected a piece  from my background stash to use for today's card.  I used Tantalising Teal and Violet Vibe Lustre Polishes and applied them randomly to a piece of white card.  I set it aside to dry thoroughly.  I used the Perseus Gemini die and cut it into the card on the top and bottom of the background.  I used the outer die from the Jocelyn die set and cut an aperture in the centre of the card.  I cut the outermost decorative die from the Jocelyn set to cut a thin border frame and attached it to the inside of the aperture.  I cut the Best Wishes die out of black card and glued it to the inside of the frame.  I used the small flowers from the  Magnolia Corner die and cut them out of the leftover background card and added them to the bottom of the frame in the middle of the card.  I added white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

HAPPY EASTER Sue and to all our family.
I'm not sure if it's my screen but the background looks quite dark, although the beautiful lustre does stand out on the close up photos. I think yesterday's inspiration is still in the front of my mind, it's amazing design, the subtle delicate colour choice, everything about yesterday's post was stunning, this maybe just a tad dark although I've just scrolled up again and it could well grow on me.
Whatever everyone's plans today, have a lovely Easter Sunday xxx

Hi Sue, Happy Easter to you and to Wilsonettes everywhere, I hope everyone is having a good day.
Today's card is most striking and ideal for those that don't appreciate too many frills and flounces. Love the rich colours of teal and violet together.
