~ Wedding Bliss ~

This is a picture of my in-laws on their wedding day almost 50 years ago.......
I just fell inlove with this picture when my MIL was showing me her wedding album recently. It's such a natural picture and they look so happy and inlove.
I tried to add a vintage feel to this LO so that is why I chose to have the pic re-printed in sepia. I used the beautiful Magnolia kit from Katie's wonderful etsy shop (link listed on the right). This is such an amasing kit with stunning embellishments.

Included in the kit is this stunning Magnolia vine which I altered slightly by using some Creme De Chocolat glimmer mist to give it a more aged feel. I also repalced the centres with the rhinestone centres that came with the kit.

These cute rose buds were from my stash. The stunning decorative pins also came with the kit. Aren't they just beautiful!!!

Another favourite item in the kit are these lovely cardstock butterflies. I added some Antique Brass glimmer mist and some gold liquid pearls along the wings. I also added some rhinestones to the large butterflies wings.

The brass flower was something I already had in my stash and felt worked prefectly for the LO. I also finished off the perimeter of the circle with some gold liquid pearls. The ribbon on the LO also came with the kit.

I just love these dragonflies I found in a little craft store up the coast the other day, it added the perfect finishing touch to the LO.
I also used some of the creme de chocolat mist on the top right and bottom left corner to complete the vintage feel.
Thanks for looking.
