A Little Bit More Colorful

~Maja Design - Sweet Birthday Wishes~

I promised to be back with more projects using yesterday's goodies, but I think that might have to wait until tomorrow, now that I've peeked at my calendar and realized I was a little bit behind on things. 

Instead, I am here to share my Maja Design creation with you, with a new take on the beautiful Vintage Spring Basics collection. Something a little less pastel-y, and a bit more colorful. 

Every now and again, I find that I creatively long for a splash of color, and this is ever more true as the weather gets nicer and nicer, and as I am reminded of all the treasures spring brings - like beautiful fields of flowers. 

Today's card is inspired by these colors, but slightly more muted, and bold...Shades that remind me of rustic, country charm. A perfect pairing for my proud lil' rooster. 

I fussy cut this little fella out of the beautiful '2nd of March' paper from Maja, and paired him with lots of stamped doilies in different shades. I also added a variety of PTI buttons, along with some doilies, die-cuts, and a sentiment from the Fresh Picked stamp set by WPlus9. 

I achieved the lacey layers by using two different punches and dies, PTI's Filigree Border Die and the EK Success Flower Burst punch.

I really love the way these soft, pastel papers can be transformed into entirely new creations with just a new color combination of embellishments. Really excited to try these soft and subtle papers with some other color ideas that are swirling in my mind...Stay tuned for more very soon!

Springtime Blessings,
