Just Add Ink #107- A case of Nikki....

Good Morning blog friends, this weeks JAI challenge is to "CASE ME"...It has been fun watching the DT add their cased projects, click here to have a peek.  Although l was a little hesitant at first, as l have only been blogging for a little over a year and was not sure that the choice was plentiful enough to inspire them.
But as you can see, they have done an amazing job using my cards for inspiration and l hope you can find something to inspire you and play along too.

Here is the card l chose to case and this is my new updated version...



While having a cuppa early one morning, the angle l was looking at my mug,  showed the white interior in a circle, framed by the black design. So as the caffeine kicked in so too did the brain, yep..it does happen on occasion.. and it got me thinking this could work perfectly for this weeks challenge.

      "Thanks for stopping by & Have a lovely weekend"

Supplies:

  5. Great inspiration piece, and wow - what an elegant card!! Love the black and white, the gorgeous ribbon treatment, and the crimping. You needn't have worried about not providing enough 'fodder' for us to choose from, my friend - I had a hard time narrowing down to just one card to CASE. Love your work! xx
