Nursery Necessities

I just had to make a card today - seems forever since I stamped! The photo is not a good one as it is a really cloudy dull day here but I used the lovely colour combo of Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Ruby Red and Whisper White which is the Inkspirations challenge on Keesh's blog this week. I am not joining in the challenge so thank you Keesh for the combo idea.

The sketch was inspired by a card I saw somewhere - who knows where now so thank you to whoever owns it! I changed a few things - the ruby red piece has been run through the Polka Dot embossing folder, I used some DSP from the Urban Oasis pack and the base card is the textured Basic Grey.

Whilst here, I must say a huge thank you to Kristie Morrison for the blog candy she sent me! Such a huge package of goodies including lots of ribbon, patterned paper, brads of all kinds, buttons and images to use as I wish! So exciting to win blog candy.
