Birthday Love

Hello, precious friends! This year has been unlike any other but I am valiantly fighting to regularly craft once again and sprinkle your work with sweetness... thank you for the continual love. I am forever thankful for you. ♥︎

I am posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a wee bit of birthday inspiration. ♥︎ This is also for our new delightful challenge at Deep Ocean, where we are playing with furry/fuzzy friends! Pure sweetness.
My darling mother's birthday is fast approaching! To celebrate, I've combined vintage pink with classic white and soft green. My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Romance.
Along with gorgeous flowers, I've layered lovely trims and elegant pearls. I love the combination of the fabric babies breath with vintage seam binding... the softness and wispiness make my heart flutter. Wild Orchid Crafts is a treasure trove of sweet beauty. ♥︎
My chipboard elements are from Wycinanka, two of which have been painted with Crackle Paste. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day! ♥︎
