Treasures of the Heart

Hello, sweet friends! Thank you for filling my heart with warm fuzzies... I am thankful for you! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, fluttering in with a sweet fairy garden card using Maja's Vintage Romance collection.

I have been eager to use the gorgeous Wycinanka Gate and since I am enamored with fairy gardens, I paired it with pretty Fairies for a magical touch. ♥︎ I hope it will brighten the hospital room that a sweet teen must live in.
The gate is covered in crackle paste, while the fairies are heavily sprinkled with Glamour Dust. The gate doors are lined with Pearl Drop Trim and secured with one of my favorite combinations: Fayette Lace bow and a pretty heart lock charm. ♥︎
Pink Pearl Garland accents my sparkly flower arrangements. Tulle, Amabelle lace, and pearl string decorate one side, while an opposite corner is adorned with a Romance Corner chippie. I have colored the corner piece with light green crackle paste to match my gate and topped it with flowers and a darling Moonlight Fairy charm.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day. ♥︎
