Just Add Ink #488...BLOG HOP!

Happy Friday Friends!

Today over at Just Add Ink we are "Celebrating 10 years" of challenges! The design team are hopping to share loads of inspiration with a theme of Celebrate!

I have been a part of this wonderful challenge group since March 2011, click Here if you would like a peek at my very first official design team post...It has been nearly 9yrs of wonderful friendships, gorgeous inspiration and loads of fun, laughter and special memories.

As part of our milestone celebrations the design team are offering prizes (South Pacific participants only). Our Top Pick & Honourable Mentions will receive a special gift. We'll be choosing some other entries to receive a little something also - to be eligible all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs along the hop - 14 stops in total.

With our challenge theme being "Celebrate" l was able to create whatever l liked as long as l was celebrating something!
Birthdays are always a a reason to celebrate, so using the gorgeous "NEW" Stampin Up! "Timeless Tropical" bundle and coordinating products, this is what l came up with.
This suite is so much fun to create with and is very versatile, even for masculine cards!

Floral images were coloured using Stampin Blends.

Now you are off to be inspired by the lovely and uber talented Jo Stubbings Jo always inspires me with her beautifully coloured creations.


Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies used are Stampin Up!
