All Sweetness and Light

Hello!

Over at the Moxie Fab World blog, the Tuesday Trigger this week is what Cath calls, "All Sweetness and Light." It is the prettiest picture! See?


I don't have anything relating to paisley but I love the pretty, soft colors in the photo, so I let that be my inspiration. Here's my take:


I wanted to also incorporate the comforter with those cute, white dots and the pretty white trim around the bedding and bed skirt.

I used a flower stamp from Flourishes. It comes in their set called, Zinnias. I white embossed each flower, painted them with a mix of Liquid Pearls and water, then cut them out and adhered them onto the card base. The leaves were cut using the Sizzix, Branch with Leaves die and the dotty paper is from Dear Lizzy's, Neapolitan 6x6 paper pad. I added some Melissa Frances lace and a Hero Arts  sentiment.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - thank you! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)
