Mojo Wedding

Today a beautiful bride is getting married in the corn fields of Iowa. (Well, not REALLY in the corn fields but in a beautiful park) I made Kathryn's wedding invitations to coordinate with her peacock theme and after glittering up the feathers of 200 peacocks and 370 feathers, I didn't think I'd be touching another peacock stamp for quite some time. Don't get me wrong, I'm a total fan of peacocks and their beautiful coloring, I was just a little over-done (so to speak) with feathers, peacocks and blue glitter (which is on my face as I'm typing this).
This weeks Mojo Monday was the perfect sketch to compliment the RETIRED peacock from Very Thankful. I took the brides color scheme of Chocolate Chip, Brilliant Blue, Taken With Teal & Very Vanilla. This fancy looking squished up ribbon has recently caught my eye and after watching a wonderful tutorial on Ann Schach's blog, I just had to give it a go! I heat embossed the peacock with clear embossing powder after stamping in Craft Chocolate Chip. The little flowers are the ONLY thing that isn't SU! on this card BUT they were the perfect shade of blue and we all know what every bride needs on her wedding day, something BLUE!!
Wish you both the best on your special day and always, Kathryn & Chris!
