Photo Inspiration - Guest Designer No Time to Stamp

For my second week as Guest Designer at No Time to Stamp we have this wonderful photograph of an Asian Bride ready for her wedding for the challenge inspiration. Isn't it a stunning picture!
Firstly I chose colours from a similar palette and decorated the blue panel with a paisley embossing folder which I had inked with gold ink and used it on the debossed side.
The main motif is a triple embossed square using gold and copper embossing powder and stamped with a lovely stamp from Stampin' Up. The brown paper is embossed with a Papermania folder and highlighted with a little gold ink. The turquoise ribbon is just a little wider than the brown, so that just a touch shows from beneath it.
I made the sentiment on the computer, which I mounted on Nesties and finished the card off with some brown adhesive gems and a couple of Quickutz swirly things.
It was a project which I really enjoyed making.
The team at No Time to Stamp make the most amazing creations, so do visit their blogs and check out their fabulous work, you'll be truly inspired. They'd love to see what you can create.
