A Very Special project - Framed Card for a Wedding!!

Dear All,

I am really excited to show you this very very special project of mine. How is this special? Well, there are a number of reasons for that. 
Firstly, it was my very first commissioned order in Singapore. 
Secondly, This is the first time I made something like this. 
Thirdly, I had a total of 24 hours, that is one day to make this (including designing, framing, delivering.... everything). 
And finally I was actually successful in it as my client was very very happy which is what that made the whole process worthwhile. :)

Here it is, my first project of its kind-
Framed Final Version
It is an A4 size framed card to be gifted on a wedding. I was not sure if I will be able to manage everything in one day but I am glad it worked out as it has really given me that extra dose of confidence that I know I can accept a challenge like this again as well.
Unframed Version
It was very difficult to picture the framed version in the normal circumstances and even the unframed version couldn't be captured properly due to the shimmer of the background paper. But I was totally in love with this project and took loads of pictures. Of course can't put all, so here are a few more :) :) :)-
Wedding Rings
 My client wanted Doves, heart, rings, wine red and purple color and the messages to be written in both English and German so it gave me a fair idea of what all 'has' to be there. Now the task was to set up everything neatly and in a way that none of the component gets overshadowed by another.
Heart to be the main focal point and should be between the doves
 They wanted the word 'Jaaaaa!' in the heart. :)
The border
I did the borders at the very last moment. I was damn unsatisfied that being a wedding gift it got to be special and nice and nothing was clicking. Finally, during my brief sleep spell something clicked and I made the border as soon as I got up. (Subconscious mind does help!! :P)
Niki- The Groom
Our very handsome groom :)
Nora- The Bride
Pretty pretty bride with a beautiful necklace.
One last shot
This was taken a minute before it went to its new owner. I was kinda sad as I knew I might not see it again. It flew to Germany the very same night. The 24 hours I spent making were certainly stressful, not because I could not make it, but because I wanted to make them perfect. 
However, I do realise that perfection is not easily achieved and it does have its share of flaws but the happiness I saw on the faces who took this away was more than perfect and that just made this perfect.

P.S -Though I am the maker of this entire project, I wish to express my thanks to all my amazing contemporary crafter friends who have always shared their awesome creations inspiring each other in more than one ways. Thank you all very much :)

Lots of love :)
