Beth and Ben get Married

Before any of my family get confused (I have a sister called Beth, but she's married to Chris) I'm talking about the Clipart Fairy's Beth and Ben bear, now you can buy Beth and Ben in lots of different situations, but not as a bride and groom, so I thought well why not put them together and see what I can come up with, and this is the result.

I used one of the Ben Bears from Ben's New Tie and a Beth from Just Beth Bear-Pink, I made her a little veil from some crystal organza, using Stickles around the edge to stop it from fraying and add a little sparkle, the little sequin flowers in her headband came from Mei Flower and she is holding a little bouquet of roses from stash. Beth and Ben are attached to strips of card that go through slots in the side of the card so that they are free-standing, I used a paper, the doors, shaped plaque and word-art (on the reverse) from the interactive Pink Flowers Arc Easel kit, the horseshoe image came from the Wedding Horseshoe set I resized it, printed a couple, arranged them in position and layered them up. Flowers and ribbon are from stash and the sentiment is computer generated. There is quite a lot of glamour dust sprinkled around here and there too.

I'm really pleased with the way it turned, out although you don't get all the three dimensional-ness!?!?! and sparkliness of it in a photo, it looks fab in real life.
