Happy Berry Burst for JAI #361

Happy Friday everyone and welcome :-) Only one week to go now before we can all order from the new Stampin Up Catalogue and the last chance to get the retiring products we've had our eyes on. Have you got your Wish List sorted yet? Mine is still a work in progress but getting longer by the day - so many lovely items to choose from!

And also with a few items to choose from this week is this week's Just Add Ink challenge suggested by Kelly. She has a beautiful choice of Flowers, Washi Tape or Watercolour for us to choose two from to use in our projects this week. Such fabulous and interesting choices and the design team had heaps of fun creating projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and join us :-)

I chose flowers and water colouring and created a birthday themed card. There is a Pool Party water colour wash that I've flicked some Gold Wink of Stella over for some texture and interest and then added a berry Daisy thanks to the new Daisy Delight stamp set and co-ordinating punch. This is one of my favourite items in the coming catalogue along with the new Berry Burst In Colour just in case you had any doubts :-) I also added several layers of white card stock under the Copper Happy Birthday to add a little height and contrasting colour,

Card stock: Berry Burst, Basic Black, Whisper White, Copper Foil
Inks: Pool Party, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Versamark
Stamps: Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Daisy Delight
Accessories: Big Shot, Happy BirthdayThinlits, Daisy Punch, White EP, White Perfect Accents, Gold Wink of Stella, Gold Faceted Gems

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see what our talented design team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create to share in this great challenge too! I'm also looking forward to sharing better photos with you soon as have a new camera on the way though it might take a little time to get to know it :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
