A palette of rose colors in the inspiration photo and the instruction to use lace OR ribbon (that’s cruel I tell ya!) and flowers! I added some wrought iron fencing from the photo as well.
I jumped over the traditional April showers, right to May flowers. Where I live, it’s early summer…which means temps over 100°. My lush garden is really struggling now and at best will only last a couple of weeks more. Card gardens last quite a bit longer!
I arranged an exuberant bouquet of millinery flowers on top of a Fleur de Lis Rectangle (Spellbinders) cut out of an old vellum dust jacket topping an inked cream colored panel. I gathered a length of lace around the stems, tied with linen thread and holding a tag from PTIs’ Little Labels.
I embossed a wrought iron fence design from Background Basics: Wrought Iron, in Zings’ pewter embossing powder and added a length of crocheted lace trim topped with a mother of pearl heart button. The patterned paper is from Primas’ Romantique paper pad collection and is stitched to the card base.
Sending smiles to you…
