Wedding commissions...

Some more from the wedding commission...

 The Bride had some poems, that she wanted me to put on an "invite style" card.
This first one was for her Mum.
I kept to the wedding colour-scheme and she wanted butterflies on all of these too. 

 This one was for the Father of the Bride,
so I tried to make it less feminine. It was difficult! 
(and she still wanted butterflies... but that's fine...I LOVE  butterflies!)

This photo hasn't turned out very well,  it is so lovely in real life!
 The Bride gave this to her daughter,
and to my delight and surprise, a few days after the wedding,
the Bride uploaded a photo of her daughter receiving this...
with a massive smile!!
Then another photo was posted, of her daughter ,
walking down the aisle in front of her Mum...
holding this with her posy.

That was so lovely for me to see!

I drew the shape myself, cut the chipboard,
covered it - front and back - with "funky fairies" paper,
(Sadly, this internet site no longer exists!)
which I printed the poem onto. I added a bit of "bling" with the sparkly gems
and some little silver gems on the punched butterflies.

The Bride and her daughter were thrilled with this... which thrilled me!

These are stunning. I love the designs and the gorgeous colours.
The heart is really special, no wonder the bride loved it so much.
