Magic of the Moment

Hello, precious friends! I hope you're having a lovely weekend. I'm sharing a soft and sweet encouragement card on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog today.♥︎
A crafty friend of mine is a tough stretch, so I created this card to encourage her to embrace every tiny bit of magic she can find. (We do make the most wonderful friends in this community, don't we?) How I treasure these beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flowers! Every card is an indoor garden for the special recipient.♥︎
I combined pink and white blossoms, which sparkle with a touch of Glamour Dust paint. A vintage crown pin (on special!) is nestled within. The dreamy papers are from Maja Design's Sofiero collection.♥︎
White Cotton Lace adorns the sides, while White Net Lace ruffles across my floral arrangement.♥︎  The lace floral corners are from my stash. I wanted to add softness to my bouquet without adding leaves, so I tucked in a few lace roses (inspired by my sweet teamie Evgenia!).
I pray this is a ray of sunshine in my friend's life. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day!♥︎

    So many people have been hit with snow recently, but here in Canada it's been lovely spring weather for the most part. How ironic is that! I haven't had a chance to get out yet and enjoy any of it, but the summer birds are arriving and the smells and sounds of the warmer season are starting to become more noticeable. Looks like it's shaping up to be a season of tons of babies!! sending hugs to you and hoping you have a lovely weekend :)
