Hello and welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy today, with a new card to share. This week I’m inspired by the abundant seasonal blooms found all across the lovely city of Charleston. Summer is my favorite time of year. My soul truly blossoms with the long sunny days, warm weather, and beautiful flowers.

You’ll find quite a bit of layering along with a couple of my handmade wildflowers featured here. Each layer is artfully torn, distressed, and stitched together.

A tutorial for the wildflowers can be found on my blog. Lace adds a bit of vintage inspired texture. I rummaged around in my stash to find the pearl earring, glass pearls, and the Prima resin piece. Additional lace and twine create a frilly finishing touch.

If you look closely you’ll notice a few butterflies have made a home here as well. The sentiment is rubber stamped in archival ink.
