I've been really out of tune with the blogging world and I apologize!
On the one hand, I have the opportunity to work on all of the crafts I could ever want for my wedding. On the other hand, I do so many repetitions of each aspect that I really miss the freedom of making whatever I want in a heart beat. I am really proud of what I've done thus far, but just in case anyone from my guest list is reading this, I don't want to give away anything prematurely. :X I'm mean like that! :) I am currently working on my guest signing poster. I was glad to shift gears to this after completing a few shy of 100 invites (I will make a separate post for this). Fortunately, they're all out of my hands now and I am very relieved of that. :) We will be traveling down to NYC for it on April 27th (a week after our 5 year anniversary actually) as that is where the majority of our friends and family are. As you can probably imagine, it hasn't been the easiest planning things from 3 hours away.
For now, I have for you a quilled card for someone celebrating their 29th birthday. I quilled 2 flowers in gold paper, but I felt that it needed more gold so I went ahead and wet embossed the tops in gold as well. That gives you the added metallic look that you see above. I really like this color combo and in fact, I will be using it as part of my wedding color scheme.
