Inkspirational Surprise Challenge and Prize Draw

At Inkspirational  we are having a special surprise challenge in honour of our DT member, Pia , who is getting married next week.

We are sponsored by Clearly Besotted  and to enter our prize draw you have to make a card featuring the colour purple ...and you get an extra entry if your card is on a wedding/love theme.

I had been thinking about my card for a while when, on Easter Monday, we went for a walk along the river and I saw two swans actually make a heart shape with their necks - I had seen that on wedding cards before but didn't realise they actually do it in real life! This inspired me to seek out the cutting file I used , and the only other things I needed were some lovely purple card and the sentiment (Stampin Up).

I hope to see you at Inkspirational for this special event.

I'd like to enter:

How special to see swans creating hearts in real life and then, translating it into a most beautiful, wedding-perfect card for our sweet Pia. She will adore it, as do I! Thanks SO MUCH for organzing this special treat for her! You're such a gem!
