Something Borrowed, Something Blue...

Hello, dear friends! I wish you a warm and happy welcome on this wonderful day. It's an exciting day for me as I'm sharing a project on the Maja Design Blog

It's almost June, a huge month for weddings. As a June bride myself, I can attest to having the traditional 'something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue' for good luck before taking my stroll up the aisle. Maja Design's gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection inspired this 'Something Borrowed, Something Blue' card for an upcoming bridal shower.

One of the many things I love about Maja Design papers is the fact that the same piece of paper can inspire endless creativity. You need only to gaze upon the beautiful designs and your imagination runs wild. Also, the collections may be named for seasons or themes, but each is perfect for any time of the year. My advice is to stock up on ALL of them!

The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form the base. Blue and ivory are present in multiple patterns and tones.

The flowers are handcrafted from design paper (there is a tutorial on my blog). A resin frame, a twine bow, a scattering of pearls, and an antique pearl earring also adorn the base.

A little butterfly also found it's way into the floral spray.

If you aren't sure where to find these lovely papers, just click on the 'store finder' tab at the top of the Maja Design Blog to locate a retailer. Thank you so much for stopping by. Your visit makes my heart happy! I wish you a day filled with joy and many crafty endeavors!
