NEW Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady Collection

Hello, G45 Fans! I am up on the G45 Blog today, a rare occurrence these days. I have stepped down from my Special Projects Designer position with G45, but they still ask me to create something for them now and again. I think it is hard for us to "part company" after so many years! {grin} I will ALWAYS be a G45 Girl. 

I am introducing the Portrait of a Lady collection, which is such a lovely, soft, feminine collection! I have not been this giddy about one of the pastel collections since Le Romantique was released years ago! I am super excited to see what I can make with this paper during the coming months!
This card was on display at Creativation in January!

I created a standard A2 card from ivory cardstock and loaded it up with beautiful papers. Rather than add pre-made flowers, I used seam binding to make a fluffy bow, and then I fussy cut some of the flowers from the paper for decoration.
A few sequins scattered around give the card just a bit of sparkle. I found a faux vintage button in my stash that suited this card perfectly. This is going to be my go-to collection for wedding cards, Mother's Day cards, and birthday cards this year!
I added a few bits of paper to decorate the inside.
