Happy April, sweet friends! It's time for a new challenge at Live & Love Crafts! We have a gorgeous Photo Inspiration collage to inspire you.
Someone very special to my heart will soon be celebrating a birthday. ♥︎
Here is the collage that inspired my card:
In true Sandy form, the collage is beautiful! Elegant, whimsical, magical... endless avenues to spark your sweet creativity. I was inspired by several facets, including the dreamy colors. I used Pion Design's Paris Flea Market to capture my favorite notes of the color palette.
I also adore the decor in the first frame, which inspired my lace design along the side. Darling two-tone roses (and hidden Prima vax cord) encourage sweet 'poofs' of Coco lace. Do you like my technical wording? :o) Inspired by the bride, I chose my favorite vintage lady from the collection to serve as my birthday girl. She is surrounded with pearl string and nestled within Spellbinders Gold Labels Four layers.
Shabby seam binding cascades below a birthday bouquet, which is accented with special embellishments: Button Etoile and a Crown Sphere Pearl Pin. The card base is a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die, which I made with Pink II from Pion's heavyweight Palette collection.
Be sure to check out what my talented teamies have created to inspire you and I hope you'll play along with us this month! :o) Thank you for visiting and have a magical day. ♥︎
