I also want to commend you on all your rationality, consciousness and consideration. You are a professional in every sense of the word, even if you call yourself a "hobbyist"
wow, thank you. thats very humbling and i appreciate your compliment so much!
7yrrt, thank you too! i actually love the colors on the original, but the bride wanted fall colors. i wanted to skip the usual orange and yellows, so i suggested these colors, i think the reds and browns went really nicely together.
man was i ever scared of those gumpaste flowers! pretty much up until the very last moment, but then it all seemed to come together in the end. they arent perfect, by far, but my first ones, and i am pretty proud of them.
