Dum dum de dum

Here comes the ant bride and groom. This is the little package topper I made for the wedding shower of a friend with a picnic theme wedding. Her invitations have little ants on them so I thought it would be fun to make this little sculpture to go on top of her present. It looks better in real life- I think it turned out kind of cute and I hope she gets a giggle out of it. Back to work now- I will be thankful for next week when I don't have such a full schedule.

Great job!!

I love how you used the same gingham for the bride's corsage and groom's hat. And that it's repeated in the base--really pulls the piece together.

It just wouldn't be a picnic without the ants, eh?

Katie said...

Kim said...

Nice to meet you too Dani! I am glad you wrote that- I had fell behind and put something together quickly too and was feeling bad I did not take more time with it. Deadlines are not always easy :)

I look forward to the card and visiting more with you :)

Laura, Mary, Katie, Kat and Jayne- thank you so much for the good thoughts on Mr and Mrs Ant. I think that the ant/picnic theme is funny too- but totally suits the bride. She is such a fun, lively and optimistic girl- fun is the best way to describe her. I can't wait to give her the present :)
