Maja Design April Mood Board

It's April and that means it's time for a new mood board from Maja Design! Since the design team just received their shipment of the new Vintage Spring Basics collection, this month's theme reflects these new, gorgeous papers. I decided to take my card in the purple/lilac direction, while adding a yummy flower and sweet butterflies:

These papers are all from the April section of the collection. All the edges are distressed and I added a bit of Vintage Photo distress ink to tie in the color of the raffia ribbon wrapped horizontally around the card. Flower is from the $1 bin at Michael's; I layered it onto a piece of Lilac polka-dotted organdy ribbon and they both sit atop a painted/glittered section of corrugated cardboard. The sentiment is from Verve's Beautiful You set which I have pictured below. Stampin' Up! has a cute butterfly die set so I punched them out and added a bit of Star Dust Stickles to their wings. The top looked a little plain so I added a decorative border with some sparkly brads. Lastly I added both Real and Liquid Pearls to accents the perimeters.

Definition mood board - n:

The papers I used are featured in this collection:

Here's the down-low on the Mood Board challenge:
The mood boards will be presented the first Tuesday every month. We will be presenting all participating creations that fulfill the requirements below April 29th. We will also draw a winner who will be winning a Maja Design collection of their own choice in 6×6 or 12×12.

After your creation is done, take a photo and send it to without any watermarks (size 600×600). Include your full address in the e-mail and what collection you would like if you win. Don’t forget to write down if you would like 6×6 or 12×12. We need your creation April 27th at the latest. Good Luck!
