Hello, dear friends! How are you doing? I hope the New Year is treating you well. It’s Nancy here today. I’m thrilled to join you on the Maja Design Blog on this lovely Friday. I don’t actually have the winter blues-lol. I am, however, totally and completely obsessed with the color blue. Sometimes I’ll go a couple of weeks favoring a certain color, and this week it is blue. Does that ever happen to you?

This is no problem when you have Maja Design papers. They have a fabulous assortment of blues to choose from. Today I’m using Vintage Autumn Basics to bring to life this sequestered garden.

The base papers are distressed, layered, and stitched. A script stamp adds interest to the upper corner if the card. Two ovals layered on foam adhesive provide a backdrop for the bench. The blue paper roses and leaves are handmade using the paper collection.

You’ll find some cheesecloth and a twine bow for a feminine touch.

    Hello Nancy
    Your layout is nothing less than AWESOME !!! It’s truly fantastic. I love your way to arrange the different elements. For example the oval behind the bench makes it stand out. The details like your stitching makes it even more exiting. Your flowers are so wonderful. At last but not least : that bench is a gorgeous idea. So clever to use it that way. Is it a dollhouse item ?
    Gosh your card is very impressing !! You are so talented and creative.
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely art.
    Hugs from Monica
