Embracing Earth's Beauty

Hello, crafty friends! It's Karen here with my first post for LLC! (Truly I must be dreaming!) It is an honor to be joining this talented bunch and designing for my favorite store. Thank you for this incredible opportunity, Sandy!

I'm wrapping up our Earth-themed week with a project that embraces and celebrates Earthly treasures. I was inspired to create a Springtime tussie mussie overflowing with the natural beauty that surrounds us. :o)
With Sandy's gorgeous range of products, there's no shortage of beauty with which to work! Pion Design's Blue Fabric from the Paris Flea Market collection was used for my cone base, chosen for its resemblance of a soft blue sky with flowers drifting in the wind.
Madeleine lace ruffles down the base as a breeze, lined with pearls because they are irresistible. The butterflies are cut from the coordinating Pink Fabric sheet.
Shabby Rose Organza trims the top of cone, which is filled with a plethora of LLC goodies. Among them are a few of Sandy's lovely new products: pale pink poppies, pink mist roses, and sweet beaded Apple Chutney pomegranate apples. I adore these apples, which even have beaded stems. Creating with such dreamy products is magical, as you all certainly understand. :o)

Thank you for visiting LLC and I wish you a beautiful day!

Hugs and blessings,
