Wedding Wishes

Today's PTI Challenge is all about using only silver, gold and a neutral. That's a tough one for me because I'm not much of a shiny, blingy person. Once my idea started, it kept rolling and turned into this:

I was inspired by one of the photo's in Nicole's post today using this cover plate, so that was my jumping off point. Songbirds had the perfect airy leaf image, which I die cut three times using gold & silver kraft paper and vellum. I cut the sweet bird out in shiny gold cardstock, keeping all the details intact.
The flower is a combination of a larger flower cut from vellum and two smaller flowers from Flower Fusion cut using the shiny gold, all of which I formed using a ball stylus. I added some cheese cloth to the back and a pearl bead to the center. The banner was cut from vellum and gold heat embossed using the Wedding Wishes stamp from Songbirds.

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
