You Are So Loved!

Hello, dear friends! I'm so happy you're here on this wonderful Monday. I hope everyone who is a mother had a lovely Mother's Day, at least in the U.S., as I know it's on a different day in other countries. 

I'm excited to be presenting on the Maja Design Blog today with a card I created for my daughter's birthday. I want her to have a card with all of my love put into it. That's really what crafting and art are about for me; putting my heart and soul into a creation that will hopefully brighten someone's day. I've been drawn to pastels recently, which seems to happen this time of year, so for this card I'm using the beautiful Coffee in the Arbor collection.

The two large flowers are crafted from the paper collection, with the addition of smaller purchased flowers to bring out the pretty yellows in the paper. 

The florals sit atop a base of venice lace and are intertwined with a loopy twine bow.  

Each layer of paper is distressed and stitched. The sentiment stamp is perfect for my sweet girl's birthday.  

Below is a peek at the interior of the card. 

Thank you so much for joining me today! I send wishes for all things good and wonderful, as well as many happy hours of creative time.
