Just Add Ink Challenge # 83.....A Sketch

This week over at Just Add Ink we have an awesome "SKETCH CHALLENGE" provided by Bronwyn Eastley and boy the DT have come up with some fabulous projects, pop over to Just Add Ink and check out them out, hopefully you will be inspired to play along too.
Heres the sketch, pretty cool isn't it?.........
For once l decided to think outside the square and try and come up with something a little different, using a little artistic licence, here is the finished project.....
I have been wanting to make one of these since forever and as it loosely fit the sketch l decided why not!
Using the awesome new DSP Paisley Petals from Stampin-Up as my colour combo, l stamped, clear embossed and fussy cut the flowers  from another new product the "Creative Elements" stamp set we received at Convention, l stamped and punched the leaves using yet another new one "Build a Blossom" punch and stamp set.
All of these are available as of September 1st.

All products used are Stampin-Up and are available now in the new 2011-2012 Catalogue.

"Thanks for stopping by" & l hope you have a great day!


  1. Wonderful card Nikki. Love that you've used so much new 'stuff'. The pearls are the perfect finishing touch.

  2. Ah, you're such a creative soul! Impressive fussy cutting ... the flowers look fantastic. I thought I didn't want that punch, but boy it makes great leaves.

  3. that IS impressive! loads of work but so effective! Love the earthy autumn colours too.

  4. Oh my Nikki this is fabulous and so much work!! But how special. Love that flower cut out and layered.

  6. Wow! Nikki, I just love how your mind works and how you've interpreted the sketch. This is another stunning creation.

  7. Wow Nikki - just love this. Love all the fussy cutting and the lovely layered flowers and those leaves :) I think this is the most elaborate flowerpot card I have seen!

  8. In-c-redible!!! What a fantastic pot of flowers. You put a lot of work into this (all that cutting!) but it's stupendous!
