The Reception: Dot Banner

This is the dot banner


I don't know what inspired me to make it, or how it will be used at The Reception, but it just seemed like something fun to make using the couple's wedding colors, which are burnt copper, moss green, cream, and lavender. The lavender throws folks when I tell them what the colors are, but I hope you can see how lovely they are all together like this.

the colors are nice together! you're right though i was like huh? really? i made something like this using white round office stickers and invisible thread for a baby shower. i strung them from embroidery hoops at different lengths...they looked like those seashells chandeliers. sadly they got tangled in the wind and messed up on the way to the shower so they didn't get used.
