From the Flower Cart!

Hello dearest friends! Thank you for stopping in to take a peek at my card. Your visit is such a blessing to me. 

I'm presenting on the Maja Design Blogand we have a special sponsor this week, Petaloo by FloraCraft, who has graciously showered us with beautiful blooms. I'm sharing some of them with you today, along with one of my all time favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Summer Basics

I realize it's autumn in many parts of the world, but the lovely papers and flowers bring to mind flower vendors at the farmer's market, which is where I draw inspiration for today's card.  

My base is design papers that are distressed, layered, and stitched. The central bloom is accentuated with tea stained doilies and lace, with a tumbling of florals reaching down the side.  

The center of the card is layered with additional design paper. The lace edge is courtesy of a border punch.  An ivory twine bow brings everything together with a feminine flourish. 

The 'Flowers 4 Sale' stamp is from my stash, and I'm thrilled to find a ideal project for it. 

Below is a side view with a view of the interior of the card. Blogger is behaving badly and leaving a ton of space between my text and the last photo. I don't know why this is happening, so please overlook it:-)) 
I hope you're having a wonderful week! May your days be filled with the joy of family & friends, and plenty of cozy time in your craft space.
