Wedding Bells

Happy Saturday everyone!  No time for a long post today because I'm off to a wedding.  I wanted to upload a few pictures before I left.  Here is the wedding card that I made for the happy couple.  I used the "Cake Topper" set from The Greeting Farm.  I just love this set...but then again, I love everything from The Greeting Farm, can't you tell!  Anyways, I paper pieced almost everything since I didn't feel like coloring.
Here's a close up shot so you can see the dimensions in her hair and flowers, oh and also on Ian's sleeve.
I also offered to make the wedding favors.  These are just simple pillow boxes with the centers die cut.  I added a velum window that was stamped with a little flourish from Papertrey's Boxes, Bags and Tags set.  For the sentiment I used a combination of the Boxes, Bags and Tags set along with Favor It Weddings, also from Papertrey.  Added a gold ring and tied with cocoa organza ribbon.  Just something simple since it was a last minute thing for me.
Here's a close up of the sentiment.  It reads: "Two Hearts One Love".
  
Well, I'm off!  Have a great evening!

Chalsie, I'm speechless. This is so beautiful: the card is adorable and your paper piecing is great! The favor pillow boxes are just gorgeous what with the die-cutting and vellum, down to the tag and sentiment with the ring! You're tops in my book! The bridal couple must be so happy you did this for them. It's a gift in itself for them. Big hugz, Cami
