A Lavender Hello

Happy Sunday!  You know what that means, time for the comment game winners to be announced!  First a quick card rundown.  I used the new A4 sized Grand embossibility called Garden Lattice for my background.  No fiddling around with extending the pattern here.  One shot and it is done, love that!  I had a small piece of the fancy lattice die sitting on my desk so it became a little frill for the bottom of my card.  I cut the largest two sizes of Decorative Labels 8 out of lavender card with a sticky adhesive sheet attached to create a frame.  I then did exactly the same with the two smallest sizes in that set.  I peeled the backing paper off and micro beaded both of them for texture.  I mounted them together on my background in opposite orientations and stamped my sentiment to fit inside the smaller frame.  I added some lavender seam binding and a messy bow,  pearl embellishment and stick pins between the sections of the card.  Finally I added a small white butterfly from the Jewelled Flower set and some flat back pearls to my frame as accents.  I really like lavender and white as it always looks so fresh! 
Now for the names of this week's winners since you have been so patiently waiting!
The winners are:
Beachie (Audrey)!!!
UtilityGirl!!!
Snapdragon25!!!
 
Congratulations to all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize! All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, Gorgeous card today and lavender and white (my favourites), just gorgeous. I love the new A4 embossing folders, they will be going on my list of 'wants'. Love the frill of lattice at bottom of card too, and the bow is gorgeous, as always.
I had a go with my basic lattice die yesterday, I tried it without the wax paper first and when trying to release it some of the edges tore, so will be trying 'with' the wax paper today ha ha !!
Congratulations to the lucky winners, you lucky ladies.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I too like lavender and white -they are innocent colours for me.
I also have the background A4 garden lattice as I couldn't get the trellis die and still can't so I really like today's card as it is so gentle.
I am off to France tomorrow so will not be on line for a couple of
days so by Wednesday I shall have
withdrawal symptons.

Beautiful, a lovely fresh 'spick and span' card. Very appropriate too, as 'spick' is what lavender flowers were once called, and I can almost smell the lavender.
Thank you, Sue

Hi Sue
I love the colours of todays card.Lavender and white together are so lovely and not everything needs to be bright to be beautiful!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is a winner for me, perfect for a bright & sunny but cold & frosty Sunday. Lavender is one of my favourite colours and perfect with white. The A4 embossing folders have just moved up my wish list but I will try this with the smaller ones that I can repeat.

Congratulations to all the winners. Have a great day everyone.

Abuzz With Creativity said...

I like the design & layout of the card, but as always, I'd pick colours that are favourites of the person I'm designing it for. I do like these colours, but they don't suit everyone. I usually write my comments on my phone & hadn't realised this didn't mean I was "following" as I'm new to blogging! I don't fully understand it all at the moment so you'll not find any posts on my own blog profile as yet. As I was on my main computer earlier I went onto your blog from there & it all looked totally different than my phone!!! I'm still upset that my A4 folders were missing from my order the other day from C&C with my split parcel. I really hope they sort it out once last weeks pick of the week arrives... I'm worried I'll not get them at all now :-(... Thanks for all your inspiration every day with your amazing card designs, Claire xxx

SusanP, Kent said...

Good Morning Sue,
Lovely, lovely lavender!
Bought Garden Lattice last week, partly because it's BIG and partly because it slightly resembles the 'Tied Together' folder you love so much (now unavailable anywhere that I can find). Still waiting for my Grand Raspberry Plate though so can't use at the moment - frustrating.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday!
Sue

Hi Sue. As always a beautiful card for today. I recently recieved my new garden lattice folder and it is wonderful. I really hope that Spellbinders make some more A4 size embossing folders.
