International Wedding

This one was made for a friend of my daughter, and combines some cultural features of Spain, Austria and the US:

The background is of an etching by Josef Eidenberger, an Austrian artist, and is titled Linz Hofgasse. The Spanish bride has lace trim and Swarovski beads on her dress (a nod to spanish lace and Austrian crystal). Her bouquet features the national flowers of the US, Spain, and Austria (rose, pomegranate, and edelweiss). Each flower is made of paper by me.
