'Timeless Memories Card' for Frilly and Funkie Challenge!

Hello and welcome! I hope you're having a lovely day! What mischief are you up to lately? All is well here. I'm a busy bee in my craft room these days, which is a little slice of heaven for me.       

We're unveiling our new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog today! Sue is our hostess, and her theme for the next two weeks is 'Let's make it a trio!' Sue says: One of the things I love to do is work in 3's on a project, 3 tags, 3 panels, 3 arches etc.... so for this challenge I'd like to see projects to including 3 of something, but this does need to be the main focal point of your project.

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and some amazing inspiration from my teammates just click on the blog link above.

I chose a trio of handcrafted roses for this challenge.

Maja Design's Vintage Autumn Basics papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base for the card. The circle on the top layer is die cut and popped up with foam adhesive to reveal a pretty floral pattern below.    

The sentiment was already a part of the paper collection! 

Additional embellishments include a jute bow and scattered clusters of glass pearls.

The image of the vintage lady is fussy cut from the paper collection. 

Thank you so much for sharing your time with me and for the lovely, kind comments. I'm turning it over to you. It's time to head to your work space and start creating. I get so excited about seeing your entries. Honestly, I feel like the most talented artists in the crafting universe share their work at the Frilly and Funkie Challenges. I send wishes for a day filled with crafty adventures!

Maja Design 'Time Began in a Garden' Card

I wish a warm welcome to all of my crafty friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely day. Spring has finally arrived in my corner of the world, and I hope it's making it's way to yours as well.  

I still have to pinch myself whenever I post a project for Maja Design! Today I'm sharing a miniature rose garden card featuring some of the gorgeous blues of the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

 Y'all know I'm in love with flowers, and there's no better way to bring the garden in your minds eye to life than with Maja Design papers!

The papers are distressed, stitched, and layered to form a base for the card. All of the embellishments (except the pearls and small tulips) are created using the paper collection. The clock and flourish in the left corner are fussy cut and popped up with foam adhesive.

The frame to the right was cut using a Marianne Creatables die. It's actually beautifully embossed, but I couldn't get the camera to pick it up.

The roses and leaves are handcrafted from the paper collection, with clusters of tiny glass pearls scattered throughout.
