Just a Note for JAI #393

It's Friday already and a long weekend for all those in Australia. This week has sure gone mighty fast and the weather has been a bit more humid than what we are used to in the south but we haven't missed out on any heat :-)

This week's clean and fresh colour challenge at Just Add Ink has been suggested by Rochelle. Our lovely and talented design team have all created such wonderful cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and hopefully join us.

Leaves seemed a great way to combine these gorgeous greens and so I used the Crumb Cake to build layers and accents around them and still try and keep this largely clean and feminine. 

I started by stamping the lovely leaves from Flourishing Phrases across the main panel and then layered the circle elements together. The top layer is vellum embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder to add to the theme.

Some Jute Twine left over from Christmas has been used to add another Crumb Cake-like element and layer of texture. Finally, the sentiment is white embossed and there's a sprinkling of gold sequins. 

Card stock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Vellum 
Inks: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Versamark
Stamps: Flourishing Phrases
Accessories: Big Shot, Flourish Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layered Leaves Dynamic EF, White EP,  Jute Twine, Metallic Sequins Assortment

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 design team have created and I look forward to seeing what you are inspired make with these colours!

Happy creating until next time,
