Beautiful Sagen Rose

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing my green-inspired creation. :o)

This is a rare quick post for me, as my sweetheart whisked me away for a surprise mini getaway to surround me with my favorite things. Thank you for the sweet comments and emails regarding my friend... I appreciate each of you so much. ♥︎ I am eager to catch up with you later today now that I'm home.
I love the muted, vintage greens found in Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics. They, along with the soft pink tones, pair beautifully with Sagen Vintage Design images.
The gorgeous rose image is from Sagen's Mix sheet. The delicacy is one of my favorite aspects of it. It is atop a Joy! Crafts Frame and Three Corners die. Detailing the bottom of my card are a few of Sandy's cream-colored goodies: Maya Road Tulle Pleat Trim, Valerie Lace, and Flatback Pearl String. The lovely butterfly border is a Die-Versions Whispers die. It is trimmed with a Cheery Lynn Anastasia border.
The Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are combined with flower sprays and decoration berries, with a sweet pearl heart accenting the corner. I can never resist sneaking in extra love. ♥︎ The greenery is from Magnolia's Heart Swirl.
A resin corner from Prima's Lace Heart and Corners collection is sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage, as the touch of gold is so pretty with this color palette. Joy! Crafts Butterfly Edge flutters above.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day. :o)
