Especially For You

My card today is for two challenges, CD Sunday which is Punch It Out (using either punches or dies) and Pixies Snippets Playground which is as always to use snippets and scraps. I started with a 6x6 white card base and a left over piece of backing paper which was from a Crafters Companion CD (sorry I can't remember which one). Next from the scraps box I die cut a spellbinders die in silver a circle with decal edge and also a plain white circle which I stamped the sentiment "Especially For You" on to it. Then from the front of this months Tattered Lace Magazine I took this beautiful die and cut in white card then coloured using promarkers before putting it onto the white circle. Finally in the back of my cupboard I found some flowers that went with the colours I've used. I know that I bought them from Joanna Sheen's website many years ago but can't remember who made them.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue

It's an extremely pretty creation in the soft shades of blue Sue and a rather nice die and a freebie as well from what you say. A goregeous Brusho card below as well.

My thanks for your kind visits, sorry mine are intermittent, but not a lot I can do about that, have to do as my body tells me !

I really like this card Sue. Really pretty and well put together. I'm always printing off papers and forgetting which CD they're from. Now I write the name on the back of the paper in pencil!

Beautiful card Sue - I love the colours and such a pretty die you used as well. Ha, I think I have some of those spotty flowers too - if I recall rightly, they were made by Prima.

Hugs
