For The Bride

I made this little card for my daughter. We are going to another shower given in her honor on Saturday. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. The image is a vintage wedding cake topper and the greeting is from a vintage bridal shower card. I used a page from a 1926 Danish songbook - this particular song is about LOVE. And the book text on the crepe paper rosette is from an old French novel. Our side of the family has Danish roots and the groom's family has French ancestry, so I was so thrilled to be able to use these two elements together.Of course I couldn't resist using lots of glitter - both clear and silver glass glitter. Dresen dye-cut love birds and vintage lace complete the card.
This sweet little procelain couple is actually a bell by Lefton, circa 1953. I found this on one of my antiquing trips and their heart-shaped mouths and the bride's aqua bouquet told me they were definitely coming home with me!

It's beautiful Jeanne :) I love that pale blue with the glitter, and of course all the thought you put into it make it so meaningful

Absolutely wonderful!!! I love the card and the great image of the wedding topper as the focal point. I also loved how you combined pieces of text realted to the ancestry of the bride and groom. I think your daughter will LOVE it!!
