Just Add Ink #132.......

Over at Just Add Ink this week we have a great sketch for you to play with thanks to Mae. I really enjoyed this sketch as it has nice clean lines and was perfect timing for making my "DAD" a fathers day card........... you can see my Dad is so not a frills man, earthy, simple & as solid as tree..:0) I wanted to keep his card the same, so with that in mind l pretty much kept to the sketch exactly and chose stamps & colours with a definite earthy feel.

The Design Team have used the sketch in many beautiful and varied ways to inspire you, so pop over and have a peek, swing by their blogs and leave them some love & play along if you can!
