Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Was asked to make a wedding card, box, and bag for the beginning of December for my Daughter's Fiance's Nephew.

The bridesmaids were wearing Maroon now this posed me a big problem as I had no flowers in that colour that I could think of, neither did I have that colour card in my stash, and as I like incorporate that colour somewhere in my wedding cards I suddenly remembered I had some seam binding ribbon that colour so I made my flowers out of that.
Hope you like my design it was a pig to photograph though,

This is a 8"x8" size card, box, and bag I made to fit.
I made my bag a little larger than I usually do  so they could put all their wedding cards in it.
I used Ivory Pearlised card as the bride was wearing Ivory.

Thank you so much for you visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
