You're The Best

Hello crafters!  We are back to once a day posts for awhile, but I hope you enjoyed the blog launch.  I started today's card by using Pale Blush and Heavenly Hues Pixie Sparkles on a piece of white card.  Once dry, I embossed it with the Rope Chain embossing folder. I cut a white frame using the Clipped Corner Rectangles.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame and added a piece of white card as the backing.  I used some Tumbled Glass Distress ink in the centre as an accent behind the flowers. I attached the frame in the centre of the card.  I used the Layered Iris dies and cut them in shades of lilac and purple.  I cut the leaves and stems in two shades of green.  I assembled the flowers and leaves and arrange them inside the frame.  I cut the sentiment from the Thank You Wordie sheets and added it at the bottom of the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Good Morning Sue. Yes , back to one post a day. As much as I love this blog, sometimes I forget when it's launch time and I have do a catch up ... Because I hate missing out.
Today's card is Sue Wilson. It's beautiful and it's you. Thankyou Sue. For all the work you put in for us crafters ... who sometimes expect more than we get. But truly appreciate the simple things as well. If you get my drift. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. Please stay safe and well 🙏.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.

Yes, thoroughly enjoyed the launch sue, it was great, my list has grown extensively! What a surprise!
Today has yet another lovely flower, the iris flower is always very upright & elegant & your die captures that entirely. I also like the colour combination. Thank you Sue.

Lovely card, and the irises are gorgeous :))

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Another really pretty card today, I particularly like the pink colour you have created for the background.
I loved all the cute dies in the latest launch but as I no longer make cards to sell, I am not convinced I would be able to make proper use of them and have not commented on each post to give someone else the chance to win them.
