Special Day

Another blue card to share today which I made using up various die cuts and a digital image all of which were lying around on my work space and are mainly either left over from other projects or were cuts made to try out dies to see how they looked when cut.  The embossed panel was part of an A4 embossed sheet and the lacy edge was the first piece I cut with this Cheery Lynne die to see how it cut and how easily it came out of the die - beautifully in both cases!.  The circular pieces were a Nellie die which I've had a long time. Image was a digital one and the central blue area is made up from part of a Die-sire set combined with a fancy corner from Marianne. I still have a bit more tidying up to do before I will be able to see and use the whole area of my glass cutting mat - it keeps disappearing under a mountain of card and paper scraps!!

One of my blogging friends Sue suggested I should enter this into the Pan Pastels challenge this week where the theme is embossing so here goes.  Thanks Sue.

  4. Absolutely Stunning Val. I love a blue card and it always looks so classy. Still got another week to go before we get back from holiday. Hugs Rita xxx

  5. This is delightful - I love the way the lacey hydrangea head is echoed by the lacey edging you used top & bottom of the white panel. My glass mat is looking rather naked & bereft - the tidy fairy has been everywhere!
