JAI #29

I think the deadline for this challenge is tomorrow so am cutting it a little fine. I should have redone the image and wording now I see my wording is crooked. I used a SAMJ too so I put it all down to old age and not seeing straight any more! This is for the Just Add Ink Challenge #29 - very pretty colours together and of course my first thought was to stamp flowers LOL. What's new! The flowers have been stamped twice and just the flowers cut out and raised with Scrap Dots.

I was inspired for the sketch of this card from one that Kathy Jones made on her wonderful blog Inspired to Stamp. Thanks so much Kathy!

The photo is not the best as it is just so dull and showery here today - supposed to be big rain tonight if we believe the weather bureau.

Stamps: JustRite Stampers and Stampin' Up!

Card: Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Very Vanilla, DSP from SU hostess 6 by 6 pad and Bella Bleu

Ink: Memento and SU Always Artichoke, Copic Markers

Other: Nestabilities, SU taffeta ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch, Dimensionals

Love the card, the flowers look so real and crooked, didn't even notice that, since the card is so beautiful. Hey isn't that what makes handmade cards such a treasure?
