First ever post!!

Well here goes, hello and welcome to my blog. I thought I would kick it off with a project I have been working on.
I was asked to do some wedding invitations for my broter's wedding in October. They didn't want anything traditional and had seen the funny cake toppers in the internet so I worked with a picture of one of these.
The colour theme was purple (a certain chocolate bar purple), cream and silver. So I researched the RGB colour and used My Craft Studio to make a background sheet, cut out the picture and pasted it onto the back ground. Did the same for the mats adding text in cream.

With a bit of purple and silver mirror card it all came together, see you what think. I had to add a band around to keep the card closed as the weight of the mirror card pulled it open.
 I now have to work on matching place cards, menus and table numbers!!!

The happy couple were extremely happy with them and I've just received mine in the post!!!!
