Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
I do hope the weather is being kind to you where
ever you may live this weekend.

Today I have an Apricot Anniversary card in a
style I saw Sue Wilson demo last week HERE
I am telling you it's Apricot as the photo has
 come out looking Orange.
Sue used a striplet die on hers, but I don't have
that so I used one of her embossing folders on
the debossed side as it looked like stitched lines.
Hope you like it.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
As I say it is a lovely shade of Apricot not
Orange as the photo shows.
I used the Sue Wilson embossing folder
Heart Lattice. 
The Sue Wilson Vienna Die form the Austrian
The Sue Wilson Fern Trio Die.
The Tattered Lace Daisy Die for the lacy flowers
as I thought it went with Vienna Die.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the 
wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following

Beautiful card, Jenny! I love all the detail. The quote 'the camera never lies' just isn't true. LOL! I often find when I use red card it often comes out more orangey in photos. xx

Hello Jenny. What a stunning creation and I just love the colours, they are perfect. Fabulous design, your attention to detail is amazing and those flowers are brilliant.
You are such a wonderful and amazing crafter, and I just love to see what you come up with next. Have a lovely weekend sweetie and happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx

This is a beautiful die-cut and embossed card Jenny, the flowers look amazing. It's so annoying though when the camera does things to the colours and there's no amount of tinkering whilst editing will fix it. I've often made cards with a matching shade of card and ribbon only to have the photo show clashing shades that don't match at all.

Hi Jenny
Does look orange but still is terrific. Looks very Sue-esque. Great use of her dies.
Best wishes.

This is very pretty Jenny. It does look orange, as you say, but the camera certainly alters colours. You have used lots of pretty dies here. Love and hugs Christine xx

Erika said...

I think the apricot and white looks fab, it is a very summery and uplifting card. Great use of dies again. I don't have any striplets yet either but the more I see of them the more I think I must! We are just really craft hoarders! Well I am.
Enjoy your weekend, hugs Erika. x

MaryH said...

Well, Miss Jenny, I need you to come RIGHT NOW, and start wiping all the drool off my chin! You do know how I love these SW dies, and what a gorgeous one you've used today. Love it with the white & apricot. Very summery and festive, and that stitched white (or ?cream?) background...ooh, just so yummy. (and of course, being you, the inside is just as tasty as the outside! LOL). Lovely floral bouquet, and I can just bet those tiny filigree petals were so fiddly, and then you added the delicate ferns to make it even more gorgeous. So very pretty. I LOVE IT! We need to share supplies! TFS & Hugs.
