Girly Thank You

Well it is a colour challenge over at Just Add Ink this week and I love the individual colours!
But I will admit that when I sat down to use them I did struggle a little to get started - but not for too long :-)
I wanted to use a bit of Gorgeous Grunge for the background however in the past when I've used Crumb cake it looked like some coffee had landed on the page! So I limited the splatters to Perfect Plum :-)
The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri set and are added with dimensionals as is the frame over the "Thank You" which is stamped with images from the Chalk Talk set. 

Card stock: Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Inks: Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake, Perfect Plum
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Chalk Talk, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Big Shot, Chalk Talk Framelits, Bitty Butterfly punch, Raspberry Ripple Ribbon, Chevron Border punch, Basic Rhinestones, Neutral Brads (retired)

Well its time to go to the Park so my dog Sally can see her friend Monty who she has missed over the weekend - and she is giving me the message to please hurry!! (yes, sometimes its hard to work out who is boss, dog or man  - she knows what she wants and how to get it)

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Cool card Jan, we must have loaded our cards at a similar time, because yours wasn't there when I checked the colours and went to finish time. Coincidentally, we've both used Chalk talk and Papillon potpourri. Yours looks fantastic.

    1. Thanks so much Carolyn! It's funny, I thought we must've been on the same wave length today too :-) I think I prefer your card tho.

  2. Love your grungy use of the colours Jan...ever so pretty and the other elements work so beautifully together....Such a lovely card! Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. Jan, this is beautiful! I love the splatters in Perfect Plum; your balance of colour is perfect. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  4. Thank you Christine :-) great colours this week....though as I was typing up the Blog I was thinking I should've used Hello there may be another card to come :-)

  5. I love this card Jan! You've used the challenge colours perfectly! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  6. Wow - I'm glad you did not struggle for long with this one Jan. It's beautiful - think I might have to CASE it! Chantell JAI

  7. Thank you so much Chantell! I'd live to see your CASE :-)

  8. What an eclectic mix Jan but it works beautifully. I think I will have to try splatter in Perfect plum! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  9. Jan I really love how you've mixed grunge and girly on one card!!!
