Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #15

Happy Friday!!! Hope you've had a wonderful week. This has been such a BUSY week, who would've thought planning a Hen's Doo would take so long. I'll share all the details with you after the big event... just incase the Beautiful Bride to be is reading!!

Now, onto Keesh's Inkspiration Challenge for this week. Today we have and Inspiration challenge... FUN!!!!! and I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this one.

I must apologise for the picture of my card. I would have to say that this card would have to be the MOST difficult card to photograph... I really struggled to get a GOOD photo of it... so I'm SO Sorry.

Here it is:-

And here is the Inspiration picture to work with:-

Aren't they GORGEOUS.

I showed this card to my hubby wanting his "creative" opinion... dangerous sometimes.. (Sarah if you're reading I'm sure you're giggling!!).... His first words were "I actually like it" and then without even taking a breath.... "that's the darkest card you've ever made... that's going to be hard to take a photo of!!!" My response to that.... " I KNOW!!!" hahaha.

I've used Black Textured cardstock for the base and then using my Pocket Silhouettes set clear embossed the image onto it. I used one of my Square Metal edged tags with another image of the same stamp embossed with Silver this time and mounted it up on some Dimensionals. I thought I'd got for a 'non-traditional' wedding card here, and added the Mr and Mrs from Basic Phrases which was also embossed in Silver and attached using a little Rhinestone brad. To finish it off some Black Ribbon.

So what do you think... do you like my "non-traditional" Wedding card or do you prefer something a little less dark?

Don't forget to pop on over and visit the other Inkspiration DT girls blogs for some more amazing inspiration:-
