On Your Special Day

Good Sunday morning all!   I selected a piece of Blue Dusk card and used the three dies together from the Stained Glass Rectangles and cut it.  I cut a piece of white card to the same size as the largest rectangle, covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet and adhered the rectangles to it.  I used Frosted Sparkle Gitterbitz on the remaining exposed adhesive areas.  I cut a smaller rectangle in white and added it on top with mounting foam.  I cut the On Your Special Day sentiment in black and glued it to the white rectangle.  I added a Heart Scroll Border in white below it.  I added the entire piece to a larger white piece, then completed the card with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all that visit.
What a lovely simple way to show you're thinking about the recipient/s no matter the occasion whether it be a big birthday or anniversary, when I started to reach those birthdays you didn't want reminding of I (nicely) threatened NO numbers on cards or else lol and so it continues, this is the card that would have made me smile, a kind gentle sparkling smile all on one celebration card xxx

A great post and while the layering dies do a lot of the work it leaves the sentiment to make the statement. Love its simplicity.....
