Wedding Present Scroll

This scroll was made as a wedding present. They will be able to insert the picture they wish into the scroll to hang. This is called Shashin/Hagake/Shikishi Kake style. It is done on occasion,  as an alternative to hang photos and pictures, and allows flexibility for the picture to be changed in or out. The colors were done to try and match the couples color scheme for the wedding. The off-white/eggshell seems to match pretty well, but I could not find a brighter blue to match the color, but did the best I could.
