Over at Always playing with paper  there is another challenge and this is the inspiration photo .

I was really inspired by the color red, how the element in the middle  has a white halo around it and the newsprint in the background. 
So here is my card

I stamped the background stamp in black ink it reminds me of the newsprint like someone is spreading some good news, which brings me to the sentiment which is from Avery Elle  stamped in Memento Black ink. I used my heart die from Spellbinders (media mixage) to cut the heart.  I inked around the heart to make it stand out and faded it to the edges. The red goes a little ombre in my opinion, which is very popular right now. 

Since I got a little vintage vibe of someone coming home from the military to wed his love from the photo I wanted to give it some masculine and feminine qualities. The pearls under the sentiment remind me of her dress and the three black dots remind me of the wings on is uniform. 

I also want to link up to week-143-ombre
Avery Elle is their sponsor this week which just happens to be where my sentiment is from. 

I want to link up to Addicted to Stamps Anything goes
