I Do

Tomorrow is the New Year and here's to new beginnings! Today at The Greeting Farm for Farm Fresh Friday we are previewing the new Anya & Ian "I Do" set and the challenge is to create a wedding card or favor. I chose to color up this adorable couple with traditional white-dress but then add a touch of blue as a secondary color.

I embellished the card with a sprig of beads (found in the wedding section at the hobby store, no less), some hat pins, and his & her wedding ring charms all wrapped up in a white bow. The white lace was added to help tie in all the white with the card. Click on any of the pictures for a larger view and you'll also see that I added glitter to Anya's dress and Ian's tie! :D

Did you know? Toblerone is a chocolate bar created by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908, and is a unique milk chocolate including nougat, almonds and honey. It is well-known for its distinctive packaging, its prism shape (triangular prism or pentahedron) and its ubiquity in duty-free shops. The product's name is a portmanteau combining Tobler's name with the Italian word torrone (a type of nougat). The image of a bear is hidden in the Matterhorn mountain symbolizing the town of its origin.

Update: I was selected the winner at Ann's Creative Nook for this challenge!
