Lavender Love ♥︎

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you're having a blessed weekend. ♥︎ I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing an anniversary card celebrating sweet love.

Despite my best efforts not to, I have once again used Pion Design's Scent of Lavender collection. I seem to have an attachment to it. ♥︎ I experimented with many others, but these papers felt right for the design.
The lovey-dovey birdies are Wycinanka's Dove Border, which I have nestled within beautifully wispy Ruffle Trim. ♥︎ The trim is lined with Flatback Pearl String. My card base is made with Spellbinders Gold Labels Four dies. The popped up frame was made by cutting a Labels Four die within the Gold Labels.
For detailing on top, I used one of Wycinanka's gorgeous Bohemian Borders. ♥︎ Purple roses and lilies are tucked in amongst my neutral flower arrangements for sweet pops of color.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
