Maja Design 'Time Began in a Garden' Card

I wish a warm welcome to all of my crafty friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely day. Spring has finally arrived in my corner of the world, and I hope it's making it's way to yours as well.  

I still have to pinch myself whenever I post a project for Maja Design! Today I'm sharing a miniature rose garden card featuring some of the gorgeous blues of the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

 Y'all know I'm in love with flowers, and there's no better way to bring the garden in your minds eye to life than with Maja Design papers!

The papers are distressed, stitched, and layered to form a base for the card. All of the embellishments (except the pearls and small tulips) are created using the paper collection. The clock and flourish in the left corner are fussy cut and popped up with foam adhesive.

The frame to the right was cut using a Marianne Creatables die. It's actually beautifully embossed, but I couldn't get the camera to pick it up.

The roses and leaves are handcrafted from the paper collection, with clusters of tiny glass pearls scattered throughout.
