Wedding wreath in pink

Last week I showed you EdMar's Wedding Wreath done in their suggested color scheme, today I am showing you the same pattern in pinks and creams to match my cousin's wedding colors. This one took me 6 days, and approximately 16 hours to stitch.

I've included my color pallet below:

  • Leaves and branches: Iris 167
  • Fine growth: Glory 167
  • Maria's Rose: Lola 018
  • Bullion Rose: Lola 229
  • Peach Blossom: Nova 000 & Lola 135
  • Cast-on Rose: Lola 169
  • Japanese Violet: Lola 135
  • Geron Daisy: Lola 233 & Lola 229

I used Lola for the French knot centers of the peach blossoms and daisy and added pearls to the Japanese Violets. In addition I used 4 colors of size 11 seed beads--pink, silver, white and clear to add a little sparkle to the pattern. I think my cousin will love it.

Which do you like better? The classic white, or the color version?
