Wedding Sunflowers

Stampin'UP! Sunflower Background Stamp and Dotted Scallop Ribbon
Absolutely love this new Sunflower Background Stamp (#123606). Perfect for the fall, don't you think? We plant them here too. David always buys the giant ones that grow 9 feet tall and our yard is full of them right now.

This card was made as a thank-you for a friend. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet. There's just enough room for this tiny sentiment in the corner.

The card also uses the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon in Chocolate Chip (#124142). Its just the right embellishment for this card. The scallops on the ribbon edge reminded me of the scalloped edge of the petals on the flower.

Still catching up from the wedding, which by the way was lovely (says the mother of the bride). Very down home feel which is just what the bride and groom wanted. The wedding was held here at the farm and the bridal party was told to wear sandles! 

Buying flowers at the Madison Farmer's MarketWe got the flowers at the Madison Farmer's Market - in the rain - which was actually very fun. We got soaking wet, filled the wagon with flowers and laughed the whole way. That's the bride in the middle with her sister and her maid of honor.

Back at the farm we had the covered porch to sit on to prep the flowers. The brides maids each carried one big sunflower with a few other colorful flowers in a very small arrangement. We wrapped the stems with florist tape and some (retired) Stampin'UP! ribbon. The dresses were a deep sangria color (thats Razzleberry to SU folks).

More coming about the wedding in future posts so if you are planning a wedding be sure to keep checking this website. We had so much fun making invitations, save the date cards, place cards, doing the flowers and decorating.  Truly a family event.  Feel free to contact me if you are planning something similar and need any ideas.

Happy Stamping
