I miss Paris so much. Even though I was there for two weeks last March, I feel like I missed so much. I never even went up the Eiffel Tower! Oh Happy Day isn’t making things easier for me — she’s sending one lucky person on a seven day trip to Paris, complete with airfare and hotel! I would give my left pinky to win this contest, and I know you would too.

Head over to Oh Happy Day for rules and how to enter!

(I told you this week was the week of giveaways!)

Australian designer Rosalind Wong has a beautiful, restrained aesthetic — I love her graceful, simple, and classic invitations. Paired with warm colors and hand-stitching, out featured invitation today has big impact with great texture and feel.

The Aves design features two love birds perched on a branch together. As a designer, I have always wanted to design an invitation with birds as I love the silhouettes they create.

To give the invitation additional character, the branch element is created by sewing yellow thread.The thread ends are intentionally left uneven to give a rustic, hand-made feel. As each stationery item is sewn individually, every card is unique.

Bright Summer-inspired yellow, orange and red tones are incorporated within the invitation set. Textured, matte, white card and metallic red card are used to enhance the tactile nature of the printed invitation and makes the vibrant colours stand out.

Beautiful invitations, thanks for sharing them with us, Ros! Find out more about Rosalind Wong on WeddingInviteLove, or head straight to her website.

Did any other girls grow up despising pink (I was a bit of a tomboy), and now love it as an adult? I now own a plethora of pink things (ahem, look at WeddingInviteLove.com for an example of my obsession), and I really adore invitations that feature pink as the main color — so sweet and lovely.
