Some Collage -- Katie Ramsdens Wedding

I was so honored when Katie Ramsden asked me to do a piece of artwork as their announcement placard at their wedding reception. She basically gave me carte blanche to be as creative as I wanted. When I mentioned collage and tearing paper, she was all for it! Thank you, Katie! It's not often I could do something exactly as I wanted to.
I used torn paper, then inked it up to antique it. I used pressed flowers that I collected especially for her wedding.
She wanted calligraphy in it, so I did that for their names and date.
It was fun to go to the craft stores and pick out all the doodads to use.
I think the whole thing cost me about $75! It was my wedding gift to them.
