An Unusual Wedding Card

This week's MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge Theme is Uses for Old Surfboards and here are the fun inspiration pictures:


I was inspired by #1 and #2 and here is my card:


This is for one of my daughter's friends who is getting married next month. I usually go traditional on my wedding cards, but Laura is not traditional. She is doing all kinds of fun themes and concepts and loves things like the chalkboard look (she would love picture number 2). So I combined a theme from one of her showers (where kitchen utensils came out of flower arrangements on the tables) and the chalkboard look to make her a card. I used the Mark's Finest Papers Holiday Tag set, the Recipe Starters set, and the Ivy and Blossoms set.

Hope you will be inspired by the pictures too and join us. Remember you don't have to use an MFP image and the prizes are always good.

Hugz!
