Just Add Ink #124

Well time really does fly when your having fun....I can't believe it's challenge time again over at Just Add Ink, This week we have a very pretty colour combo for you and heaps of gorgeous inspiration from the DT.
Now isn't that pretty? l really couldn't decide on what l was making this week and eventually after a lot of yes/no procrastinations, l went with a 3D item, just for something different..:0)

This challenge was perfect for creating a much needed gift box for a beautiful silk scarf l had purchased in Cambodia.
As the Challenge colours worked well with the Blues & Chocolate tones in the scarf, all l needed to do was create some matching DSP strips for the bands & tag using the Mixed Bunch set and punch out a flower for the belly band, add some ribbon to tie the top closed and it was done!
Don't forget to check out the challenge blog and the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team!
