Just Add Ink #141......

Well another week has just flown by and once again it's "Just Add Ink" challenge time. This weeks challenge was provided by Kathy and l must say these colours are just gorgeous!

As soon as Kathy suggested this lovely combination l just new my card would end up being some form of "Vintage" inspiration, it really is so soft and pretty and was very different to anything l had used before!

I was really happy with this card when it was completed. l had fun using the the new Stampin-Up Holiday Frame embossing folder on a non Christmas card and adding the gold heat embossing just reminded me how much l enjoy playing with embossing techniques and watching that dull powder heat up and become a shiny "wow" factor!

The Design Team have some lovely inspiration for you and it seems I'm not on my own in loving this colour challenge, all of the samples this week are "drool worthy" and the girls have inspired me to dig these colours out and play again...:0)
