Wedding Fever???

I think that wedding fever is well and truly here because this is the first of the 3 commissions I have taken for wedding cards in the last couple of weeks alone, lol.

Not that I am complaining, I do love a good wedding and making wedding cards is fun!!!!

As you can see this one is an easel.
The images are oldies but goodies from the Magnolia range.

The background paper is from Kanban and it is matted onto matt silver and silver mirror board.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The pins were made by threading various beads onto a quilting pin.

The ticket sentiments are from Whimsy Stamps.

I've added silver peel off corners and added a flat-backed faux pearl.

The organza ribbon and 3mm ribbon were bought from my local haberdashery.

The images were coloured with a combination of Copic markers and Prisma pencils in colours to compliment the colour theme of the wedding itself.

Finally a photo of the easel from the side, phew!!

Now the couple this card is for are not followers of this blog so I'm hoping that it is safe to post it now . . . the wedding isn't until the weekend after next !!! 
I'm entering this one into the following challenges:
