a bridal affair

Yesterday I vendored a bridal show at a huge hockey arena in our area.  I had a blast and met lots of people that scrapbook and plan to make as much of their wedding decor as possible.

This is one of my display pieces.  I saw something similar on the CTMH consultant boards using this Sonoma paper and it was so beautiful I wanted to make my own.  I'd already planned to create a topiary but wasn't sure what paper I wanted to use till I saw that other one. 

I used a 5" styrofoam ball with 3.5 inch flowers cut from the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.
The white pins are just boutinierre pins from Michaels wedding section.  Paper is the Sonoma Level 2 paper pack.  Purple ribbon is  the NEW color ready seam binding ribbon in the CTMH Spring catalog.  I used a sponge to die it with our Smokey Plum ink pad.  LOVE IT! 

The leaves are olive cardstock also cut with our Art Philosophy cricut cartridge... at about 5 inches.  Used a regular clay pot, some raffia and a wooden dowel from Michaels.  The wooden dowel is stained with Desert Sand reinker.  Just dripped a bunch onto a sponge and rubbed along the dowel to stain.  The woodgrain shows through- it turned out really nice.
