Winter Birthday

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a lovely day. :o) I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, showcasing beautiful papers from Maja Design's Home for the Holidays and Vintage Frost Basics.
A dear loved one has a winter birthday and this versatile collection is perfect for such an occasion. The tiny snowflake paper on the front is from Maja's 6x6 Winter Frost Basics, only because I don't yet own the Home for the Holidays 6x6 pad for a small-scale snowflake pattern. It's nice when paper collections work so wonderfully together.
My friend has a beautiful heart of gold, so a Prima Lace Heart resin piece serves as the focal point, which is covered in Shabby White Frantage. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are covered in Glamour Dust, while pretty trims ruffle throughout the design. The lace Juliette bow is centered with an exquisite Button Etoile.
Inside is one of the gorgeous snowflake designs for a flurry of birthday love. ♥︎ 

Several lovely dies were used throughout my card. The card base is Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, while the top die-cut layer is the stunning Sue Wilson Embroidered Strip. Magnolia Heart Flourishes accent my flower arrangements, Cheery Lynn Snowflakes flutter about, and the My Craft Spot sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Lacey Pennant

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful weekend. ♥︎
