Special Friendship

Hello, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a card for a special crafty friend. ♥︎
The beautiful image and papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Romance. This is one of my favorite Maja images and I've been eager to use it. The pops of pink within it are gorgeous, so I carried that throughout my card.
The softness and texture within the image inspired me to give her a double frame of lace. The interior trim is the new Lace Angelique, which is paired with the classic Rhinestones Lace. Layered beneath the frame is the lovely Coco. Wild Orchid Crafts blossoms surround her, within which I've tucked in a Capped Teardrop Pearl Pin and baby pink Pearl Garland. How I adore the garlands Sandy carries. ♥︎

My sentiment is from Little Darlings Just Because stamp set, which I've cut out with a Spellbinders Nested Lacy Pennant.
My Wycinanka Romance Corners chippie is adorned with pearls. Layered on the top and bottom of the card are mauve Jamila Lace and a flat-back Pearl Strand. The layered Maja butterflies are from Coffee in the Arbour
The card base is made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The lovely soft green made it difficult to see in most pictures, sadly. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
