Wedding set!

Hi guys, well it's pouring down with rain for a change!!!,
we will need an ark at this rate! lol,

make a brew I've a few pictures! lol

I made these  for a wedding we're going to in May, where the bride loves Purple hence my colour scheme,

As you can see I've made a Wedding hat and matching card set,

the hat!

The papers are by Pion from Tracy at Dies to die for,and my images are all by Magnolia and coloured with distress re-inkers, I must admit I've changed my colouring style with these since I coloured them but hope the're ok,

I machine stitched the brim of the hat and made my own circle as I hadn't got a large enough die cut then! the flowers are from WOC and stash,

Kay's being her bridesmaid so I know she's having purple for her their dresses, 

This one is at the back and I've covered the join up with the same gorgeous heart lace, I got this from a market and I love it!
I wrapped a piece of cream tulle round the hat centre and tied it in a knot so the ends flowed slightly, hard work to get tulle to flow lol,

This is the other side of the hat, and you can see the pearl trim at the bottom of the hat that I also got from the same market,
the  Doo Hickey swirl is also by Magnolia and  I cut some of the butterflies off a scrap piece of the pion paper to match in and add some detail,

Top view of the hat, made using a circle nestie, again machine stitched, a couple of heart swirl magnolia dies on with pearls and flowers again, the scroll label is also by Magnolia and I added the text with some small alphabet stamps I have,

The card,
you still here!
thank you lol,

I wanted to bring as much of the elements into the card which is on the hat as I could, so I used acetate to show the papers off, the bride is wearing an ivory coloured dress, so this is why she's not in a white one lol,
again I've used the pearl trim for the bottom edge and  the same flowers and pearls etc,

It's hard work taking a picture through acetate as you always get a reflection from the glare,

I made a pocket style card for the back and again used a scroll to add their names, the same pearl trim is on here too,
the labels are made using a Doo Hickey tag die cut  three times and I've edged them in vintage photo,
This is the order I've put them in left to right,


This is left  blank for the hand written  sentiment 


And this just because cupid is about love after all, lol
Last picture

A matching box for the hat to go in!

well hope you like it and they do too, lol
