 Isn't this such a sweet picture?  Maybe they did this, but it would be perfect for a engagement announcement.  Anyway, it is the inspiration picture for this week's {PIN}spirational challenge #16.
Sometimes, I have a hard time with inspiration challenges because I like to be told exactly how something should be done.  But my anniversary (13!) is coming up at the end of the month and this picture was a good jumping off point.  The first thing that grabbed me right away was the woman's denim shirt and the red check's on his shirt.  I have denim look paper from a DCWV pack and knew that's where I was going to start.  Then I pulled in the red and the green from the field and the weathered wood sign!!  I also had some wood/board paper in that pack and "white washed" it a bit with white craft ink and then stamped my sentiment on top.  I'm really proud of that. : )
