Archived Snip: Blue flowers and Golden Light

Some found clippings from magazine advertisements:
(Can't remember which one).

This beautiful very simply coloured pale blue on white
presents two different flowers in a repeating pattern
surrounded by stems and leaves. Its hard to tell where the
repeat begins and ends in the original snippet. 
The edge of the cutting presents a nice
picture of real (or maybe fabric/fake?)
flower with the carefully printed floral image
that is either a wallpaper or a vinyl sticker.
In a beautiful kind of rhubarb red/pink.
This damask like pattern is very regal looking - suiting the wedding based advertisement naturally. The rich golds and the lighting of the image seem to show a richness of the pattern that perhaps wouldn't be seen without such effects. the pattern is very Victorianesque.
