Just Add Ink #393....Colour!

Happy Australia day Aussie friends! What's everyone up to today to celebrate our nations special day?
We will be celebrating my sons birthday. Being an Australia day baby means he always gets a day off and its just a tad more festive than a normal day.
On to this weeks Just add Ink challenge! Well aren't these colours a bit appropriate for today....not exactly "Green & Gold" but if you squint, l think they pass as another "Australia Day" tribute!
Rochelle has chosen the colours for this week and they work perfectly for a masculine birthday card!

I have combined a couple of dsp packs, Delightful Daisy & Eastern Palace and used the fun new punch from the Truly Tailored Bundle and the aptly named Celebrate You "Sale a bration" thinlits. I've also added a couple of the cute Tutti Frutti adhesive sequins (well the two lemon lime twist ones).

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the teams creations!

Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies used are Stampin Up! Unless noted.

  1. I thought the colours had an Australia vibe too, Nikki. This is a fab CAS card. I love how that punch shape tesselates.
    Happy birthday to your lucky son too.

  2. Love the punched background Nikki.such a great CAS card.

  3. Nikki, I am always looking for ways to use up my DSP. Thank you for providing a lovely solution! The punch is becoming one of my favorites. Happy birthday to your son.

  4. LOL, I never linked the colours and timing of the challenge to Australia Day! Too funny! Your card is a great one for men - I really need to get that punch soon. My Nanna was an Australia Day baby too. I hope your son had a great birthday.

  5. That punch just works awesome to make graphic masculine cards! I love how you used it here to carry the colours down the card and back your sentiment Nikki. xxx

  7. I love how you’ve used the Truly Tailored punch to create an interesting background Nikki - and those sequins are my fave too! 😁 x
