i{heart}papers ... Challenge Day

Well...there's a story behind this post...LITERALLY!  Our challenge for today is to make a project based on a story.   The book I selected was the classic fairytale ~ Cinderella.   My project is all about the last line of the story, "...and they lived happily ever after."  ~ which means there was a wedding at the end of the story!

So with the story picked, I decided to make a wedding ensemble.  I started by pulling out the stamp set by Our Craft Lounge called Bird & Groom.  I also pulled out some pattern paper by Basic Grey called Kioshi.   I usually plan out my projects out, but this time I just started putting things together to see where it would go.  I have to be honest...this isn't what I was picturing in my head.   The color palette is a bit odd for a wedding ~ but the pattern paper & the gift box really started to dictate the direction of the projects and I just went with it.

Here is a little table favor for guests or a gift box for the bride and groom.  The sentiment is from the Bird & Groom stamp set.  I didn't have any ribbon that matched Kioshi pattern paper, so I used some white May Arts ribbon and colored it with my V15 Copic marker ~ perfect match!

Next up is the wedding invitation ~ I printed it out on the computer on the Kraft cardstock and then stamped the church image in Palette Lavendar Sachet ink on the background.  I added another pattern of the Kioshi pattern paper pad to the top and more colored ribbon. 

Next up are some simple post-card thank you notes for the bride and groom.  I added a bit of Punk Purple Sparkly Fluff to the Bird & Groom stamped images to add texture and make them POP.

I can't wait to see what all the other girls did with this challenge ~ go take a look and don't forget to leave a little love along the way...
