Second of Three Wedding Samplers

Here is the cross stitched sampler I made for the wedding last weekend.  This is the same design I used for my niece's wedding in September.
Their wedding colors were dark aqua and purple, so I chose the colors for the birds to match.  The purple was the most difficult because I had to guess.  The shade was dependent on the colors of the flowers, so I chose the best floss color to go with the aqua.  The brown was chosen last as a compliment to both birds and the whole piece is stitched on 14-ct. cream Aida.
I can't wait to show you the final wedding sampler.  It's a completely different design. ;-)
