Here comes the bride...and the groom!

Ok, not really but I did make this ensemble for a swap I'm participating in at convention. My friend and roommate Diane twisted my arm really hard for this one. I choose the destination/themed wedding group. My original idea was do use Ahoy, Matey and change the Pirate boy into a Pirate bride and groom but after over a week of trying and several drafts that just didn't come to be. I can see it in my head but I just don't have the time or patience for it so I was off to plan B. Here, locally, we have a great garden spot called Weston Gardens in Bloom. They have these wonderful demonstration gardens and the have this great stone ship that is being restored. I always thought it would be a great place for a wedding. Apparently when the place was a personal residence, they threw lavish parties and the ship was used for dances! Anyway, I decided to do a garden themed wedding. I used the Pretty Peony stamp set as my basis for all my pieces. I have to say this swap challenged me to no end but I am really pleased at the results. Here's a picture of the entire ensemble:I hope you enjoy it and if you know someone getting married in the future, have them give me a call.
