Follow Your Dreams JAI #288

Wow this week has really flown! This Saturday is the Stampin Up On Stage event here in Melbourne and I am really looking forward to catching up with some of our Just Add Ink team members that are coming for it too. My lovely friend Katerina popped by on Wednesday to help me with my swaps which are all ready early - really love that - thanks K :-)

And also lovely is our new challenge at Just Add Ink this week :-) The lovely Narelle has suggested a fabulous sketch for us all to use. Very clean and open to interpretation and the Team have created wonderful samples to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

This is for a friend's daughter's 13th birthday and pink was definitely the order of the day -  and I'm not quite sure how the numbers ended up on the INSIDE for this significant birthday but they did :-) 
The fun caravan was coloured with an Aqua Painter on water colour paper and then fussy cute out. The layering was so easy with lots of framelits and you may be able to see that the white panel is raised on dimensionals to be a little higher than the DSP strip - polka dots on polka dots - this was such a fun card to make!

Card stock: Whisper White (Thick), Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Water Colour Paper, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer
Designer Series Paper: Brights Stack
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Basic Grey
Stamps: You're Sublime
Accessories: Big shot, Stars Framelits, Hearts Framelits, Large Polka Dots EF, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Triple Banner Punch, Silver Cording Trim, Basic rhinestones

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 wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you this week and I look forward to seeing what you will make with this fabulous sketch too!

Happy stamping until next time,
