Just Add Ink #440...Blog Hop!

 Just Add Ink

Happy 2019 everyone, I hope it's a fabulous year of good health, loads of happy and much crafty goodness!

Well, it's time to kick off the Just Add Ink year! As we always do, we have team "Blog Hop" and our theme is "Something New".
This can be absolutely anything that you have acquired, but have not yet used!

With the release of the brand new Stampin Up! Occasions & Sale a Bration catalogues, l have a lovely little stash of new goodies, so deciding what to use was fun!

I have gone with the super cute, stand alone stamp set called "Flowering Desert" and combined it with some softer colours (Blushing Bride-Flirty flamingo-Mint Macaron-Old Olive & silver) to create a card with lots of prickly pretties!
I added some spiky detail to the feature cactus with a black fine liner.
