You're So Lovely....JAI #375

Happy Spring/ Fall everyone and welcome :-) Here in Melbourne the pretty pink and white cherry trees are starting to blossom and the bright Spring bulbs are blooming. After the cool and grey colours that Winter brought it is such a delight to see the colours begin to pop and the leaves begin to grow again. The warmth of Summer is a coming :-)

It's also time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink! This week we have this fabulous CAS (Clean and Simple) Sketch from Kim. As always, our lovely design team have created gorgeous projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and we'd love to see you join us.

I had a lot of different ideas when I first saw this sketch but I kept coming back to flowers - maybe it was the influence of Spring :-) and that led me to flip the sketch to use it vertically. The new In Colours are so elegant and fresh - I have used three of them here, Powder Pink in the Embossing Paste background as well as the main flower, Berry Burst and of course a pinch of the ever vibrant, Lemon Lime Twist.

Some Navy and gold touches, a little vellum and a sprinkling of the gorgeous new Iridescent Sequins and this little number is ready to post :-)

The sentiment is embossed in White and then shaped using paper snips.
