Best Wishes

Butterflies are the symbol of life so they are a good choice for wishing a bride and groom best wishes on their new life together.  The bride, my stepdaughter, used peacock feathers as an accent for her flowers and decorations.  After I colored in the feathers, I found this pattern paper from the Marachesh collection by Basic Grey.  It fit the theme and colors perfectly.  Sometimes things just work out as if you planned it that way!

We just returned from the wedding of Amanda and Matt and wish them much love!  More about the wedding later on...

Project Notes:
  • The Cricut cut my scalloped square but I inadvertently gave the white paper too round of rounded corners.  So I added the Mellow Moss cardstock in between to fill the gap.
  • "Best Wishes" didn't quite fit into the frame so I used markers to color and stack the words in an arrangement that could be cut to fit.

Thanks for stopping by!
