Maja Design's February Mood Board Challenge!

 
It's that time again! I know I mentioned that the new Maja Moodboard is posted the first Tuesday of every month but I have to correct that, since the beginning of the new year it is now the firs SATURDAY of the month.  That being said here is the gorgeous Moodboard for February!...
 
 
 I love that the moodboard for February is not your typical  pink/red/white color combination (although I do love to scrap pink)...this mood board has such lovely shades of violet/purple/plums with some beautiful neutrals.  The moodboard is based on colors in the 'Ska vi ta en Fika?' collection.


I used mostly papers from the above collectin but added a little bit in from the Vintage Spring Basics collection as well (striped background for the card) and a little bit of Vintage Autumn Basics (clocks).

 
The roses I used on this card are from an old package of Prima flowers I had in my stash, mixed with small white roses from Dusty Attic Designs.  The vine flourish design was cut from Maja papers using the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die cut.

 
I created a shabby-chic frame design for my card title with a Dusty Attic Design frame and some white pearl 3D paint (I used Scribbles brand found in the T-shirt section of Michaels Craft Shop).
 
 
Here is an even closer view of the frame.  I usually like to machine stitch on my cards but I ran out of the heavy duty upholstery thread I ususally use for stitching on my cards and layouts, so I had to cheat and draw on the stitch design with a brown pen.
 
Maja Design papers used on this project:
~ Ska vi ta en Fika (Favoriter, Blommor på bordet, Våffla m björnbärssylt-bs, Söders höjder - bs)
~ Vintage Spring Basics (8th of April-bs)
~ Vintage Autumn Basics (XVI) - clocks
~ Life in the Country (Sowing Seeds-bs)
 
I hope you get a chance to play along with this months moodboard challenge at Maja Design,there is a beautiful Maja Design collection (of your choice) up for grabs as the prize each month!  You can find the challenge information HERE.  You can also see more inspiration from our talented design team there, to get your creativity going!

GASP...oh that is so beautiful. And you know, from looking at it here, you wouldn't know it was fake stitched. Has the same effect, always stunning.

Gabi - This is a really beautiful card. I love the "stitching" on this card. It shows up so well. Also love the the vine and the chippie. You make Maja and Dusty Attic go so well together.
