Wedding Card #3

Here is Wedding Card commission # 3.

The colour scheme is the same as the previous wedding card, I guess ivory and gold is a popular choice, very elegant.

The paper is from Kanban and its matted again on that shimmering gold paper which I managed to get hold of again (in quantity this time).
The scrolls were made with Sissix Tim Holtz "Elegant Scrolls".

The images are Edwin and Tilda, naturally.  They are coloured with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.

They are from the  Wedding 2010 collection from Magnolia.
I've used some Diamond Sparkle Stickles on the bride's dress, crown, veil and bouquet.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the centre rose is a 35mm Trellis Rose in peach and I've used 15mm roses and rose buds in the arrangement too.

I wired the peach crystal beads onto fine gold wire.

A photo of the inside, with simple decoration and a sentiment page.  The verse is from the Internet and printed onto cream shimmering paper in Amazone font.

This page was created by simple matting and layering of gold, cream and pale peach shimmering paper.

The gold rings were bought from Dunhelm Mill and I arranged them together and finished with a length of matching gold edge satin ribbon.

The final picture was a bit of an after thought, hence my lovely wallpaper in the background, lol.

. . . the presentation box, decorated to match.
