Springtime Bliss

I wish a happy hello to all of my sweet friends! How are you doing today? I hope you're well and enjoying fine weather, though March can certainly be and unpredictable month. I'm once again honored to be posting on the Maja Design Blog, sharing this new card inspired by springtime flowers and pastels. I'm using the lovely Coffee in the Arbour paper collection, as the pretty yellows, greens, and roses seem to sing to me.
Featured in today's card are handcrafted blooms, leaves, and layers of pastel design paper. You'll also find some painted and distressed corrugated board, natural twine, and venice lace, for hints of the rustic as well as a feminine touch. A bit of grunge and elegant script stamping add to the overall effect.  

The cheery hand stamped sentiment is perfect for almost every occasion. Below are some close ups of the handmade florals.  

You can see the layers of distressing and stitching along the edges of the card, as well as a bit of the interior with it's coordinating script stamping.

I send a huge thanks to each of you who have stopped in to visit today. If you're interested in bringing this paper collection (or any of the other gorgeous papers!) home with you, just click on this STORE FINDER tab, and you'll be transported to an online store near you. It is an honor and a pleasure to have you here. May your day be filled with peace, joy, and love, along with delightful crafty adventures!
