I wish a happy to hello to all of our friends at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and what a blessing it is to have this time with you all. We have a special sponsor this week, Petaloo by FloraCraft, and they’ve graciously showered us with beautiful blooms. I’m sharing some of them with you today, along with one of my all time favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Summer Basics.

I realize it’s autumn in many parts of the world, but the lovely papers and flowers bring to mind flower vendors at the farmer’s market, which is where I draw inspiration for today’s card.

My base is design papers that are distressed, layered, and stitched. The central bloom is accentuated with tea stained doilies and lace, with a tumbling of florals reaching down the side.

The center of the card is layered with additional design paper. The lace edge is courtesy of a border punch.  An ivory twine bow brings everything together with a feminine flourish.

The ‘Flowers 4 Sale’ stamp is from my stash, and I’m thrilled to find a ideal project for it.
