Peace JAI #279

Welcome to a lovely Friday - I just love Spring - the Cherry Trees are in blossom, the garden is starting to flourish and the daffodils are nearly out :-) It will be 20 degrees today for the first time since May and so a trip to the Garden Nursery for summer veggies is not far away :-)

It's also time for a fun new challenge at Just Add Ink! This week Narelle has suggested a lovely sketch for us all to use. I hope you can take a moment and pop over and see what our wonderfully talented Team have made to inspire you :-)

Here is the sketch:

Such a fabulous sketch :-)
Here is my card:

I have taken a little artistic licence with the circle element of the sketch but hopefully you can still see it in my card. I was excited to try a 3D tree with these fabulous new framelits that have just arrived:-) There are 4 stamped trees to give it some dimension and the background is from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum stack - so sparkly in real life!

The simple "peace" greeting is cut from the new Thick Whisper White card stock -  it is so much stronger and indeed thicker -  perfect for die cutting from as the words hold their shape and have a little extra height too. Definitely a favourite already :-)

Card stock: Pool Party, Gold Foil, Whisper White (Thick)
Designer Series Paper: Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack
Ink: Pear Pizzaz
Stamps: Peaceful Pines
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Pines Framelits, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack (star).

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment and pop on over to Just Add Ink and see the fabulous creations our Team have made to inspire you! And I look forward to seeing what you will create with this lovely sketch this week too :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
