What a Lovely Day!

I wish a happy to hello to my sweet friends! How are you doing? I hope you're having a wonderful day. I'm excited because I'm presenting today on the Maja Design Blog, and I have a brand new all occasion card to share. 

Once again I'm quite inspired by pastels, which I attribute to the beautiful weather and long sunny days, and the lovely Sofiero collection is just what I'm looking for!

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. A paper doily anchors the lush bouquet of paper flowers.

Twine bows add a frilly  and feminine touch. The sentiment is part of the paper collection, no stamping needed for this one! I did a bit of stamping with a script stamp to add a bit of interest, then added a dusting of gesso.

Below is a peek of the interior of the card. I always try to coordinate it with the front.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It means so very much to me. It's an honor to be here with you. I wish you a day filled with joy and fun filled hours of creativity!
