Engaged in Turquoise

An engagement party invitation for my Miss D and her fiance' who share double Ls in their names. It just begged to be played with! The color combination is a bit unexpected, I guess, but they like the colors individually so why not put them together! This turquoise is really deep and might be called peacock blue. And as you can tell by my prior posts Miss D loves turquoise. Bill likes brown and autumn is around the corner so it works. The peachy, coppery color will hopefully come into play with the flowers and containers and linens for the party. The knots in the silk ribbon? A subtle note that they will be "tying the knot" in about a year. I can't wait to pull it all together!

While I was in the middle of assembling these invitations I got an order from a bride for a turquoise padded hanger and she requested a copper ribbon. There is no doubt turquoise is a hot color right now. I couldn't believe how nicely my two projects complimented each other! Just like Danielle and Bill!
