Dekrisha's Surprise!

Instead of tossing her bridal bouquet, Dekrisha gave it
as a gift to the guest who had traveled the furthest
to come to her wedding, Dubai.

Her guest was so moved by the gift, that she wanted to have it preserved 
and returned to the bride as a surprise!  
She found me online and brought the bouquet to my studio.
She chose to have Dekrisha's bouquet pressed and preserved,
then mounted on a light green background and framed in barnwood!

When the art was completed, the bride and groom were told
to come to my studio, but did not know why.
Imagine Dekrisha's surprise when she realized that the bridal bouquet
she had given as a gift, had been preserved and returned
to HER as a gift!

Here is a closer look at the bridal bouquet of White Tulips,
Ranunculous, Orchids, Stephanotis, Hydrangea, Lilly of the Valley,
Light Green Hydrangea and Rosemary Leaves.

She also chose 4 Scrapbook Squares. 
These are small 2" square pieces of artmade from bits of left over flowers
that can be used for scrapbooking or for magnets.

Thank you, Jane! It was delightful to be a part of Dekrisha's surprise!
