On Your Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

Gosh - so many comments about the colour of yesterday's card! It was black card as I said in the description and not blue and as it was black on my screen I had no idea it was going to cause so many comments about it being blue!

I have a card from the Flowers Shows I did recently today. I know some of you may not be able to see it very well as it is white on white so that's a given, sorry.

I need to take some more photos of the Autumn samples but have been having problems with my camera so will have another go when I have time.

Today I'll be demoing at Domino Crafts in Wolverhampton 10am till 4pm - please pop by if you're in the area.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Celebrate Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over.

I stamped the Magnolia from the Creative Expressions Spring Flowers Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shmmer Lapis Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Spring Flowers Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pearl Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Locking Loops.

I made 3 ribbon flowers from White Satin Edged Organza following Sue's Tutorial. I cut a couple of leaf flourishes using the Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Add On die set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Don't forget to check out Sue's video today if you haven't already done so.

Thanks for stopping by.

    But I just wanted to say thank you for your fantastic 'Caught in Crystal' demo on C&C - I bought some Alcohol Ink and Varnish yesterday and had a go last night, it's not bad for a first attempt, but I need more practice!?! Thanks to you I have tried something totally different - and loved it. Keep up the good work! Best wishes :-)
