Melancholy Blue

Oh to be young and in love... hmmm... Something about those first days of tenderness. I thought I'd share this card with you about this sweet girl - with the image from a new Flourishes set. The set is called Open to Love.
Melancholy BlueI used the pretty young girl from the set and stamped her on white cardstock. I stamped her on a scrap of designer paper from the Basic Grey Lilykate line and paper pieced to give her a pretty top. I stamped the arch on some Lilykate paper and placed my girl in between the scallop paper and arch to give the illusion of a girl leaning against the windowsill, waiting for her boy.

Some additional details are the stitching around the designer paper panel, custom colored dew drops, a neutral button and a couple of custom paper buttons (cardstock covered in Ranger Glossy Accents).

I don't know about you but I hope her prince comes home soon!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lisa
