Rabbitsy in Blue

Here is my challenge entry for the Circle Magazine contest –  a wedding shower shadowbox.

The rabbits are from the Cosmo Cricket Just a Note cartridge that came with the E2 Anniversary edition.

The bride is attired in antique lace dress with a scrapbook tape sweetheart neckline and an ivory ribbon sash from Paper Trey Ink.  Her floral bloom fascinator is from the Flower Shoppe. The groom is classically attired in a navy blue tuxedo.  The happy couple were “Serenade”d by clouds and crystal raindrops.

The flower arrangements, from Flower Shoppe and Mother’s Day Bouquet, were created in keeping with the bride’s palette of blue, ivory, and silver.  The glitter branches were embossed with Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls.

The quote is from a 16th century French posey ring – figuratively it means Always – but the literal translation, For All Days, seemed to fit the idea that a marriage isn’t for one (wedding) day, but all days.

Wedding Shadowbox

I’ve been working on a wedding shower shadowbox this weekend, and realized an anniversary was approaching quickly for my friend Karen.

Karen loves lizards – in fact – she even had one or two on her bridal veil (pink, I think – faux, I am sure).  The couple are holding a heart from their wedding “fiesta” invite which preceded their wedding several states away.

The Cricut Imagine Cuts are from Best Friends – his figure originally had pig tails which were trimmed, and he got a more masculine figure through the use of a purchased “soccer shirt.”  Overall, I still like it.  Almost a year later.  An accomplishment.

I should be wrapping up with the latest shadowbox soon.  It is a whole new palette to me – blue.   And I hope to get the rose bush tutorial done soon as well.

In the meantime – here are Karen and Antonio from October 2010.
