Timeless Friendship

Dear Friends
Happy belated New Year!

It has been a long time since I posted anything on my blog.
I really miss the creative process.
Hopefully this year I will be more productive and
share more than just paper crafts with you.

Without further ado, here's my 1st card for 2016.
I used Maja Design January Mood Board and a sketch from
Creative Inspirations as a guide for my design.
Love this color palette, so soft and romantic!


The image is Dear Alice from Gorjuss Girl rubber stamp.
As usual, I water colored the image with Distress Ink pads.
I added white frantage in the background and dusted some glitters on the flowers.

Dies ~ Go Kreate, Magnolia, Marianne, Memory Box, Spellbinders, Tim Holtz
Designer Paper ~ Maja Design Vintage Summer and It's Christmas Time Collection.
Embellishments ~ Lace, ribbons, s/a pearls from The Ribbon Girls

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you all a happy day!


I have participated in the following challenges:

Hi Katie! I was just thinking about you today. I was going to send you an email to see how are you doing and now I saw you posted here on your blog. :)
Happy New Year to you as well - I hope it's a good one for you!
In the crafty world you sure started it off with a *bang*, because this card is amazing. I like the soft colours and your interpretation on the sketch. Fab work as always.
Sending big hugs your way! xx
