Enchant Your Life!

Hello, dear friend! I hope you're having a lovely Tuesday. I can't believe it's the first week of September, with many parts of the world ushering in the first signs of autumn. Mother nature isn't quite ready for fall in my sub-tropical corner of the world, where she's gifting us with sunny, hot, and humid days. 

I'm blessed to be posting on the Maja Design Blog today, and the warm weather draws me to all things cool and refreshing. Once again Maja Design's gorgeous Coffee in the Arbour collection comes to the rescue. The soft blues and raspberry hues are just what I'm looking for.

The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. A trio of circles draw the eye across the card. The first is die cut from the center layers and popped up for dimension. The circular resin frame is layered over another die cut circle to the left.

Handmade and purchased blooms cascade from right to left, accented die cut leaves, glass pearls, and twine bows. The sentiment is hand stamped onto design paper.

The lower corner to the right features berry vines and 'Raspberry Lemonade' from the design paper, which are my inspiration for this card.

Below is a side view with a peek at the interior of the card.

Thank you so much for visiting today. If you're wondering where these beautiful papers can be found, please check out the STORE FINDER link at the top of the Maja Design blog. Also, don't forget to play along with the September Mood Board Challenge for a chance to win an entire set of design papers. I send wishes for all things wonderful and many crafty inspirations!

Hugs, Nancy-sign
