Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #89


I stepped out of my box a bit on this card as there is hardly any white on it.  It's taking some getting used to all the colour on the card, but I think I'm liking it as the sentiment panel just pops :)  That's what I love about this hobby, always something new to try, something to stretch yourself with, and something to delve into if you find it to your liking.

I used some My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose paper, the Curvy Bookplate die from Verve as it was the perfect size for this wonderful sentiment from Verve, and my MFT butterfly die which was wanting to come out and play :)  Hopefully I have redeemed myself from last week's butt kicking colour challenge LOL!

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
