Eclectic Flowers and Words for JAI #380

Hello, it's Friday again and the end of another week. We've had a rather busy one but it has been lovely to see the start of Daylight Savings as it is a sign of warmer weather to come.
We have had a few lovely days and that just makes us yearn for more :-)

We have a lovely CAS sketch this week at Just Add Ink designed by Narelle. Our design team have all created a fabulous array of projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and join us.

I really enjoyed using this sketch and this is the second of two cards that I made with it this week.
In keeping with the CAS sketch design, I kept the rest of the card elements quite CAS too. Turning again to my favourite stamp set in this year's catalogue, Oh So Eclectic, I added a little texture with ribbon, the embossing folder and the frame over the flower and a mix of bright and lighter colours.

Card stock: Whisper White (thick and standard), Berry Burst, Gold Foil
Inks: Lemon Lime Twist, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy
Stamps: Oh So Eclectic
Accessories: Big Shot, Lovely Words Thinlits, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Pretty Petals EF(retired), Gold Faceted Gems, Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the lovely inspiration from the rest of out team and I look forward to seeing what you will make with this really versatile sketch too.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Yay for daylight savings! Loving the longer days & warmer weather. Although I've been a bit out of whack all week....

    Love the punches of colour on your card, Jan. Using the woven ribbon is a nice change to cardstock, & does add to all that gorgeous texture you've created. x

  2. This is such a gorgeous, elegant card Jan. I love all the little details you have added. Superb.

  3. Such a pretty card, Jan. I love the pop of Berry Burst on your card.

  4. Beautiful card Jan! The blossom is gorgeous! Love the embossed background! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Oh Jan, so fresh & pretty. I love the colours and touches of metal & shine. Definitely one for the case list.

  6. Absolutley stunning card, Jan. I love your layered elements and the pops of bright colour. The wrapped strip of ribbon is so elegant and the rich colour looks devine with the gold elements.
