'Now is the Time' Card!

Hello, my friends! I'm sharing a new card on this beautiful day over at the Maja Design Blog

I'm reflecting on time this week, as my youngest child  is about to graduate from university. How did all of those years slip away so quickly? They truly did fly by. I'm reminded to savor each precious moment, for time is a gift and memories are treasures. I'm drawing my inspiration for this card from Maja Design's gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

I begin by distressing, layering, and stitching design papers to form a base. All of the embellishments for this card are die cut from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection. A double layer of vintage die cut clocks anchor the floral arrangement.   

I have a tutorial for these roses here on the  Maja Design Blog
Below, a border punch adds a lovely touch to strips of design paper. In the bottom corner you'll find a stamped sentiment. 

A twine bow ties everything together with a feminine flare. 

Thank you so much for visiting! I'm always excited when it's my turn to join y'all. May each moment of your day be filled with beauty and crafty adventures!
