Joy and Laughter

Hello, sweet friends! Happy New Year! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a sweet little card. I adore WOC purples so much that I couldn't resist making a card to coordinate with my previously posted tag.♥︎
The pastel lilac Cherry Blossoms pair so beautifully with the deeper purple of the English Rose and Gypsophila. The largest flower is the stunning Chelsea Rose, one of my favorite additions to the WOC store last year.♥︎ My papers are from LemonCraft's Violet Silence.
Sweetheart Blossoms (and Minis!) trail up the side, while a sparkly Bead Berry Spray adorns the bottom. Nestled within are the most darling leaves, touched with sweet pink love.♥︎
A heart crowns my Anna Griffin sentiment, as elegant as it is heartfelt.  The pretty frame is from Sue Wilson's Lauren collection, which was a beautiful gift from a sweet friend. All of my flowers have been trimmed in Glitter Paint for sparkle.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a lovely day!♥︎
