8x8 Wedding Display Piece, Easel Backed, Christmas

Way, way back at some point during the early summer months of this year I was asked if I would make a display piece for a Christmas Wedding - using Royal Blue, Silver, Cream and White.
My only other part of the brief was that it had to look 'Christmassy' AND suit a wedding theme of ribbons and baubles.

So I made a start on this design months ago, shelved it away and came back to it recently to finish it off.

I've never met who it's intended for.

Hope she likes it!




My main challenge for this design was that I hate, loathe and detest the colour blue!
I've never liked the colour - even as a child.


Now I've just got to figure out how much to ask for it!




Stay warm, friends.
Spring will be back eventually!

    1. Thank you so much, Claire. Making the box for this was less traumatic than I thought... just as well I had a good blog friend to ask for advice about it though!
      Hope you are keeping well... and warm! We were snowed in for a few days!!! ❄️

    1. Some blue tones are ok (only for craft projects) now that I’m older. I used to hate purple equally, too! Orange is loathed most of all though! Thank you, Pam. 💕

  4. Donna, I'm bedazzled by the artistry showcased with the work of art you've designed! Despite your dislike of blue, you've woven it seamlessly into the piece, and oh, how beautifully it accentuates the gorgeous blooms, frame and snowflakes. I echo the others: stunning and most definitely a keepsake to be treasure for years to come! Going back for close ups...you may well hear my sighs of joy as I do so *grin*
