Just Add Ink #126.....

Having just spent 18 glorious days in Bali with my family l am ready for some crafting time.....l am so looking forward to getting inky and creating and hopefully l will have some fun stuff to share with you shortly.
Now onto this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge. We have a great sketch for you to play with this week provided by Mae and the Design Team have some fab creations to inspire you.

For my card for this week l have used some DSP from one of the numerous 6x6 pads l have collected over time but have only used the odd page from, this one is called "Happy Day" from simple stories and l love the muted colours and fun retro feel.

Using Chocolate Chip Cardstock for the base and mat layers, l pretty much let the DSP do the rest. As the card base was so dark l added a writing panel on the inside and of course that just needed a little something too.......

Don't forget to pop over to Just Add Ink and have a peek at the wonderful DT creations and l hope we see you pop up in the gallery this week.

               "Thanks for stopping by & have a great day"

  6. Great card Nikki. I love the combination of papers you've used and the way you've rounded the corners. The inside is just as pretty. You've inspired me to make more of an effort on the inside of my cards because I am lazy and just leave mine plain.:0
