Riddersholm Design - Wrought Iron Inspiration

Happy Sunday, y'all. I sprained my foot at my high school last Thursday, so I was forced to stay put all weekend and I took the time to get some paper crafting time in. My foot is quite painful and incredibly ugly right now, but all in all, it's not a bad trade off...

This weekend, I've used some gorgeous paper from the new Fleamarket line by Riddersholm Design. I just love the blue, brown and cream colour combination for this lovely paper collection! I was inspired for this victorian garden feeling from yesterday's Splitcoast stampers challenge from the Vintage Trading Company. I love these cream wrought iron garden stakes from their website.

I've used a sentiment from Scripture Collection 9 from Our Daily Bread Designs, which I've had for awhile but not enough hours in the day to get it inky!  I chose to stamp it on this designer paper because the pattern on it is so muted that it enhances the sentiment rather than overwhelming it. I really love the little blue splotches, which add a lovely pop of colour.

While I'm not a huge fan of birds, I love the graceful shape of this little resin bird from Riddersholm Design, and it was perfect for the inspiration challenge and this sentiment.

Have a blessed week, everyone!
