JAI 52

A quick share with you today!

This card came together really easily after I knew what I wanted to use. The sketch was one that was taunting me.... So, I had to participate. The Just Add Ink sketch seemed to be a lot harder than it actually was to pull together...

I knew I wanted to use the colour combo of Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla and Crumbcake, so the card took off from there, with the addition of some non-SU ribbon and a Blushing Bride sentiment. I'm pleased with how this card came out, not my usual colours, but something that came out of left field and bowled me over.... (enough sports metaphors?)
Come back during the week, to enter my blog candy that is coming up to celebrate the beginning of Sale A Bration, and my 300th Blog Post!
