I bought the background and sash from http://www.formal-invitations.com/teal-invitation.html I had the white and brown cardstock and photo border punch at home. I went through about 3-4 different colors of ribbon till I finally found one that matched the color of the background. I think they turned out pretty nice. I'm happy with them  Grin

It's sort of hard to see but I made a peacock feather watermark to put behind the writing.


I ended up using the 2 different colors of brown paper because it was all stuff I had laying around the house. Both of them worked and I didn't have enough of either to complete the whole bunch. It worked.

Beautiful! I think the watermark is great, not too dark or light.  And it doesn't matter if the papers are different shades of brown - they're all going to different people, so no chances to compare!  Grin

Never in my sweet short life have I felt like this before.

Those are truly delightful!  And to think you made them with stuff you already had!  Genius!  Smiley

Beautiful!  I love the teal... then again, I'm partial because teal is our wedding color too.  I just love it!  And your paper bands are SO pretty!   Smiley
