Inkspriations challenges again, though I must admit the peach colour in this combo was giving me some serious grief! Maybe it is because I had to substitute the colour and it wasn't a good fit, but regardless of the cause, I showed that colour who was boss by minimizing how much of it I used on the card. Yes, I know, it a sad state of affairs when one has battles with paper, but it's always fun when you win LOL!
I combined this week's sketch with an old Cardabilities sketch. I wanted to use the sketch, as is, for a Christmas card as it was already made for me, but ran out of time so it will be on the shelf for next Christmas for sure.
Out came the lacy circle nesties and some punches to create the focal image. I Swiss-dotted the center circle and used my French Script background stamp on the red portion for a little texture. Mind you I just noticed I put the script upside down on the card - ugh! Still working out the stamping kinks LOL! A crimped horizontal panel for some dimension, a bit of ribbon with a bow and a birthday sentiment in lieu of the brads up top and I was good to go. Still a slow process making a card, but it is wonderful to be stamping again so I can live with it LOL!
The rest of the Design Team has some great inspiration to get you going on this week's sketch.
In addition, each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog. We'd love to see your card featured, so come and join us this week :)
Have a fabulous weekend :)
