Where Flowers Bloom

Hello, crafty friends! It's Karen here to share a soft and sweet creation. Poppies are one of August's birth flowers, so Sandy is having us play with them this week. :o)

Soft pink poppies inspired a delicate encouragement card, upon which I've combined two Pion Design collections: Linnaeus Botanical Journal and Paris Flea Market.
The background paper is from the Rose du Jardin sheet from Paris Flea Market. The beautiful Isabelle lace is lined with a light pink design from Linnaeus Botanical.  The "Where flowers bloom so does hope" sentiment is cut from the Caroli Linnaei sheet.
The resin Prima Shabby Chic Frame was sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage. The triple-layered butterfly within is from Linnaeus Botanical. Hope is key to endure tribulations, so I paired the sentiment with the stunning Key to my Heart charm. It is covered in Shabby White Frantage and decorated with tiny pearls. It hangs from pearl string, as does a pearl heart for extra love.
The yellow centers of the Apple Blossoms inspired a trio of sunshiny Pion butterflies fluttering above. Shabby Seam Binding ruffles alongside the floral arrangement.
The interior is lined with the Linnaea Borealis sheet, as I wanted blossoming flowers throughout.

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

Hugs and blessings,
Karen ♥︎
