A Fairytale Wedding

It’s Tuesday and that means a brand new cue word is over at CASology!  This week?  Think happy, dreamy thoughts because we’re thinking…

I couldn’t get the phrase “happily ever after” out of my head and was lucky enough to discover a stamp set in my stash that contained that very sentiment!  How lucky is that?!

I went with a wedding theme for my card, keeping it as simple as ever!

The stamps are from two separate Inkadinkado sets and I inked them up with Encore Silver ink.  I added a clear heart-shaped gemstone (colored with a red Copic marker) to the very end of the flourish for a little pop of color and interest.  I love banner strips and, while I first thought this was going to be a one-layer card, I quickly changed my mind and layered some silver cardstock behind a strip of white.  Rounding the card corners was the finishing touch.

I hope you’ll join us over at CASology this week!  There’s nothing like a little fairytale fun for me!  I love thinking back on all those childhood stories that just make me smile and sigh a dreamy little sigh.  Then…I snap back to reality, realizing my own life story isn’t so bad itself!  Yes, some days I admit I feel a bit like Cinderella, but with a handsome prince in the house, I think I can handle a few messes!

Don’t forget to visit the talented design team members’ blogs for even more inspiration and this week, we have Darnell as our guest designer…you will not regret paying her a visit!


Remember to link up your own FAIRYTALE creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
