♥ Love gives us a Fairytale... ♥

I love this Free printable sentiment that Papertrey Ink offered a couple of weeks back. "Once in a while in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairytale." So beautiful! Perfect for a wedding card, don't ya think?
I made this card for the new challenge over at The Kraft Journal. It is to use "bling" on your card along with Kraft paper. I love using Kraft paper, I don't know why I don't use it more often! Anywho, my card uses some beautiful paper from The Girls' Paperie, a Prima flower that I inked purple and added glitter to, a Prima crystal swirl, punched Martha Stewart butterflies. I first punched 2 in pink cs to use as my base, then I punched 2 in Kraft cs and added more bling to them. Finally, I finished it off with some pearls and pink satin ribbon.
I was also inspired by the following challenges:

~ Bearly Mine: Ribbon and Pearls
~ Truly Scrumptious: Swirls and Pearls
~ The Creative Cottage: Fabulous Florals
~ Ooh La La Creations: Pink, Pink and more Pink

Don't forget to enter into my giveaway HERE! Good luck!

Have a great weekend!

Hey there, Melissa! I was so excited to see you played along with our bling challenge over at the Kraft Journal! What a beautiful card you created! I love the girls' paperie paper and the lovely flower and satin bow. The butterflies are fabulous, and I love the swirls and the paper distressing. Such a lovely vintage creation.
Hope you come play along with us again.
