Inkspirational Challenge - Congratulations Pia!

It's an extra special challenge this time over at Inkspirational.  Us DT girls threw together a surprise challenge for our teammate, Pia, who is getting married next week.  Congratulations Pia and Thomas!  So very happy for you!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness, love and laughter.  Big hugs!

So, the challenge is to create a purple card.  Why purple?  Well, it one of the main colours Pia chose for her wedding.  Even her dress is purple.  You should see it, it's gorgeous!  If you create a purple card then you are entered in for the draw of a £15 gift certificate to Clearly Besotted.  But wait, there's a twist!  Create a purple wedding card and you'll earn an extra entry!   Now here's my card...

Purple and grey are lovely together, aren't they?  I used grey because that was another one of Pia's wedding colours.  I started my card by stamping my large bouquet (Inkadinkado) in grey and colouring it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped the sentiment (CAS-ual Fridays) in grey as well.  I cut an oval from a white cardstock panel and then embossed it with a damask folder (Sizzix).  Then I attached everything to a grey card base.  It's currently winging it's way to Denmark and I hope Pia will like it.  :-)

Hope you'll come over to Ink and see what awesome projects the other DT girls made.  And I hope you'll join in on the challenge too.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
