ODBDSLC283- Wedding in Peach

Good morning!
Today we start a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!
It's a peach wedding theme challenge.  Below you will see the photo we are using for inspiration this month.

I've made a wedding set, card and Gable Box.

ODBD dies: Glorious Gable Box, Heavenly hearts, Layering hearts, Bitty Blossoms, Butterfly & Bugs, Lavish Layers, Pierced Rectangles, Layered Lacey Ovals, Ornate Ovals

Here is our inspiration photo
Please visit my design team sisters for more inspiration

I actually started with my box using a heavy weight shimmer card stock for construction. Because it is for a wedding I wanted it to look like the wedding cake that I saw in the photo. I made some tiny flowers from the Bitty Blossoms die set and tried to make them look like they were placed in a curve up the "cake". I used pearls and a sheer white ribbon to dress it up as wedding also.  I found some scraps of a peach print paper to use under the heart to tie it all together. I embossed a Butterfly for the handle to bring the color up to the top.
I then made my card to match.

I used the shimmer card stock for the majority of the card but added white linen to bring out some parts as the whites photograph differently. The stitched rectangles add interest as well. I love the Lavish Layers frame in white linen.  It really sets off the hearts and sentiment.  Again I finished the card off white pearls and sheer white ribbon.
The sentiment comes from "The Great Love Chapter" in the Bible written below.

1 Corinthians 13 New King James Version (NKJV)

2b though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

What a stunning set, Robin!! I just love your use of the inspiration and your soft elegant set. Jaw dropping gorgeous my friend! Thanks for sharing the scripture. We were on the same wave length. I think our world would be much different if we remembered this scripture and did not have our own selfish ambitions.

This is a treasure that I am sure the recipient will keep as a memento forever....The focus on the Scripture is just what the world needs today for sure!
