Wonder, Believe, Inspire!

I wish a very happy hello to all of my dear friends! I hope you're having a lovely Monday. I've been away since May due to a shoulder injury, and can't tell you how thrilled I am to be mostly recovered and back in my craft room again. I'm back just in time to share a new card on the Maja Design Blog  featuring Maja Design's Fika collection, and my favorite color; purple.

Each layer of paper is distressed and stitched. A bouquet of handmade flowers provides a cheery focal point, with die cut rose leaves and  loopy twine bows entwined throughout.

I have a few new stamp sets I'm using with this card. I've been waiting a long time to be back with all my crafty goodies, and couldn't resist bringing them out to play!

If you look closely you'll find resin butterflies fluttering amongst the blooms.

Finally, a touch of gesso for a shabby chic finish.

Thank you all so much for stopping in today. I've missed being here, but have spent my time being inspired by all of your gorgeous creations during my convalescence. May your week be filled with the joyful presence of those you love, and many happy moments in creative pursuits!
