Another JAI!

Added Thurs 17th May: So excited … I received an “honourable mention” … for this card!!! Thanks so much to the JAI girls for their sweet encouragement! Hugs xx

Hi Bloggies!

I am sooooo enjoying playing along with some of the great challenges out there in blog land. If there were more days in the week … I could post more samples!!! Obviously there are only so many you can do in one week. And … the closing date … has to line up with blogging, too! But … I do love the inspiration that I get from these challenges! Today’s card is for the current Just Add Ink #117 colour challenge.

Now … I am not a yellow girl!!! It is my daughter, Skye’s favourite colour … but I find I rarely use it in card making … so when I saw this challenge … I decided I just had to have a go. That is … after all … what a challenge is about!!! I still found it a little tricky … and resorted to the ‘all over’ stamping! Always a winner! I was quite happy with the result … and I think the ribbon weaving was a wonderful accent to what might have been a rather dull card! 😉 giggle! Hope you are having a great day!

    That ribbon weaving is amazing in any colour! Love what you have done 🙂
    I like the pearls too – they give the flowers a special lift.
    Have a great day.

  4. There’s nothing remotely ‘dull’ about this card, Andrea – it is beautiful! I love the sponged flower centres, and the woven ribbon accent. How clever are you?! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
