To a Very Special Friend

Hello, crafty friends! It's Karen here. It's a busy holiday weekend in the United States, but I squeezed in some crafty time to share a card with you today. I am showcasing some of the newest Pion Design and Prima goodies.

I mentioned last week how beautiful the artwork is in Linnaeus Botanical Journal and today I am featuring one of the scenes from the Images sheet. I continue to adore the colors throughout the collection, including the green of my card base. It is the prettiest shade I've come across in quite some time.
Isn't it a lovely scene? Pion captured nature's beauty to perfection in Linnaeus Botanical Journal. Shabby White Frantage is sprinkled around the border, although in retrospect I may have preferred Aged Gold. The gorgeous butterfly fluttering on top is from Prima's Imago mulberry paper butterflies set. The designs are so pretty and I love the wooden bead body.
Prima's Shabby Chic Resin Treasures are always spectacular and their new Garden Fountain set does not disappoint. I accented the resin with Shabby White Frantage and gave it a pearly fountain. It rests atop the beautiful Shabby Rose Organza Trim and alongside the new Flatback Pearl String. The sentiment is from Pion's My Precious Daughter collection.
A Pion butterfly (from Shoreline Treasures) flutters above the Wild Orchid Crafts flower arrangement. The Chrysanthemum is surrounded by antique blue cherry blossoms, an apple blossom, a sweet blue rose tucked on the side, and a decoration berries spray.

Thank you for visiting LLC and I wish you a beautiful weekend! :o)
