Me and You

Hello, dear friends! I'm here with a quick post after a busy week and will catch up with you this weekend. I am on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a lovey-dovey celebration of a sweet marriage. My card features gorgeous papers from Maja's Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Romance.

This card is part of a box of love for a family enduring heartache. I have previously mentioned how I like to celebrate the unbreakable love of parents that inspiringly grow in love as their child battles terminal disease. So I tuck in a card for them to share, while the rest of the box is for the superhero kiddo.  ♥︎
With Sandy's extensive selection of Wycinanka chippies, there is always a perfect piece to either create a theme or accent it. I have combined two darling chippies for my focal point: Doves 2 frame and Summer Wedding border. ♥︎ The pretty Cappuccino crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana of DL.Art and the foliage is Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourishes.
The frame is covered in crackle paint, while the fluttery border sparkles in Shabby Pink Frantage. On the left I layered both beautiful shades of Amabelle lace, as I couldn't resist a pop of sweet pink. The sentiment (from Vintage Romance) is trimmed with Fayette lace for softness.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely weekend. ♥︎

  11. Karen, I love that you do that for the parents, too, because it is another form of encouragement not to give up on Love during the hardest times of their lives. It's a beautiful depiction of romance and strength, and I most especially enjoy the delicate die cut in the middle of your creation, with the growing vine, and freed butterflies. So rich in symbolism! Beautiful, and sent from a heart full of prayerful love, too - you are indeed a gift. hugs, de

  20. Love this card Karen, I think I've commented on it elsewhere because I'm having a serious case of déjà vu! LOL. The crackle finish on those woodchip elements is fabulous and the sweet trail of butterflies and vine across the centre so pretty. Love all the beautiful details, the papers are stunning, the white blooms so soft and pretty and the green leafy details such a beautiful backdrop. Beautiful creation hunny, so beautiful. Hugs, Wends xoxo

  21. How sweet of you to include the parents of ill children! They so often forget to nurture their love for each other in all their pain and grief, and this card will serve as a reminder to them of their special bond. How beautiful this is with that lovely crackled chippie and enameled vine! The lace is breathtaking and the perfect finishing touch in my humble opinion. Your work is so inspiring and your heart is so big! Big hugs to you!

  22. Fabulous creative work with the chippies; you have managed to create such a beautiful and romantic scene. I absolutely adore how you used the Summer Border in combination with the frame (the crackle effect is stunning!). Also love the layered Amabelle, as well as your use of Fayette. Thank you for showcasing the LLC products so beautifully; you're a star!
