Anything Goes with Purple - INKspirational Challenges

Oh yes, this challenge is soooo me! I just love the colour purple.

Let me tell you how much I love purple. I am getting married end of this month (next Saturday, yikes!) Yes, I am tying the knot with Mr. T. In fact I love the colour purple so much my wedding dress is really, really purple. My first time ever tying the knot and we are going for the "as un-traditional as possible" theme ;o)

Enough about my wedding jidders and back to cardmaking business. 

The Inkspirational Challenges theme this time is: 
Anything Goes with Purple

This morning I woke up to see a wonderful surprise on the Inkspirational Challenges Blog. My sweet Design Team friends have chosen this challenge in celebration of my wedding...I am so delighted and mowed by this. 
And on top of that they have a prize up for graps from my absolute favorite brand Clearly Besotted Stamps! So totally cool of Stephanie, owner of Clearly Besotted Stamps, to sponsor this celebration challenge :o)
Thank you all! 

Here I my card for this challenge......

I must say the stamp set "Vintage Flowers" from Altenew is FANTASTIC! It is awesome how you can stamp layer on layer with darker and darker ink tone to get this 3D look. 

The sentiment in Danish means "Missing You".

  15. Hello Pia--Congratulations and wishing you and your partner much love from Temescal Valley, California, USA. My husband and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary on July 4th, but we love each other so much that we still feel like newlyweds. We actually consider grocery shopping a date; today we went, and we shared a copy as we delighted in selecting our week's supply of food and making more great memories. I have finished the card for the inkspirational challenge, and the piece is contains a lot of purple, plus hearts, and a "love" tag.

  16. Sorry, I forgot to mention that I love the layers of purple you used for the roses on your card. :)
