Maja Design March Mood Board Challenge!!

It's time again for the Maja Design Mood Board challenge!  This month its based on the beautiful 'Ska vi ta en Fika' collection!!  I love the gorgeous shades of plums and greens mixed with the warm earth tones in this collection!
I decided to make the above card using a few of the plum and lavender papers and added some of my favourite Dusty Attic chipboard pieces to embellish with.  The window frame is one of the NEW Mini Arch Window chippies, the nests chipboard, as well as some of their sweet blooms! 
 
Here is the March Moodboard! (Above) You can allow the colors to be your inspiration, the beautiful poem, Jenny (our DT coordinator) does such a nice job of putting together, or some of the inspiration words.  If you would like to play along this month and have a chance at winning a Maja Design prize, you can find the challenge details here MAJA DESIGN BLOG 
Here is a close-up of the card....I made little 'eggs' using a bit of polymer clay.  I've got a fun mixed media project coming up using polymer clay, so please stop by in the next couple of days for another video tutorial!
Supplies:
Patterned Paper:  Maja 'Ska vi ta e Fika (Favoriter, Soders Hogder, Mandelkaka, Blommer pa Bordet)
Chipboard: Dusty Attic (Mini Arch Windows, Nests, DA Blooms)
Other: Lace, Pearl Strand, Leaf ribbon, acrylic paint, chalk ink.
