Wedding / Anniversary at 613 Avenue Create

Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy –                   (page tab above)
Good morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always it’s 
Anything Goes with the Optional Twist – Wedding / Anniversary
The twist was suggested by our fabulous Carol.
I am lucky enough to have been invited to a friend’s wedding this month and was looking for a traditional keepsake to give to the bride on her wedding day.
I looked around on line for some inspiration and found lots of decorated horseshoes. As they were quite expensive and I have lots of bits and bobs lying around my craft room I decided to give it a go.
This is what I came up with.
I do hope she likes it.

I wound Guipure lace around an mdf horseshoe.
I then decorated it with ribbon, cabouchons, mulberry flowers and leaves and gems.
I used heat transfer paper to add the couple’s initials and wedding date to a burlap heart I made using a Tonic heart die.
I made a box to put it in.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges….

  8. Hey Sheryl! This project really grabbed my attention - what a beautiful idea! I bet the couple loves this gift - so creative!

  9. Absolutely stunning! When I was preparing the post, I had to keep going back to your project because of its strong design appeal. The palette is beautiful and your decision to limit the amount of embellishments elevates the design. I think my favorite part are the exposed areas of the Guipure lace. Very nicely crafted, indeed!
