Be You

Hello, everyone! It's Karen here today with a bit of crafty inspiration. Sandy gave us free reign in terms of theme this week, so I instantly grabbed my favorite purple goodies. :o)

My encouragement card showcases papers from Pion Design's Alma's Sewing Room. ♥︎
I'm thankful this uniquely beautiful collection is still in production. The card base and dress were made with the 6x6 Purple Wallpaper sheet, while the circular element is from Purple Room. I've had one of them for a year... it can be so hard to cut into pretty designs.
Sandy's Pearl String encircles my focal point. Maya Road Pleat Tulle Trim provides an extra layer of texture beneath it, as well as along the bottom of the dress for wispy elegance. The Pion butterflies are fussy cut from the same collection. A Lace Heart Appliqué adds extra sweetness, which is topped with a Shabby Seam Binding double bow and a sparkling rose. Isabelle lace is nestled beneath.
The Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are dusted with Glamour Dust for the utmost sparkle. Beaded Pomegranate Apples in Vanilla Cupcake accent the arrangement, along with a Vintage Crown Pearl Pin and a darling Spool charm.
My rolled-up sentiment is stamped upon the 12x12 version of the Purple Wallpaper design. A peek inside shows the beautiful scissors pattern. This is such a lovely collection.

Thank you for visiting LLC today and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Hugs and blessings,
