Just Add Ink #288 - Sketch

It's sketch time at Just Add Ink this week!

There are so many things in this world to be grateful for but how often do you take the time to thank someone for something they've done and show them you've appreciated their help?
I know for me that I often verbalise my appreciation but I think it's nice to also put some action (like a little card or flowers) with those words.
This sketch was the perfect opportunity to create a card for one of these occasions.

I've embossed a piece of black core'dination paper and then gently sanded off the top so the white peeped through.
I put this behind my starburst cutout (although from this picture it's hard to tell it's sitting behind) and for the final touch I put on a big 'Thanks'.

I really hope you get to make time for yourself to play along with the Just Add Ink sketch this week.

The Design Team have created some beautiful samples so don't forget to pop over to the JAI blog and have a look.

Can't wait to see what you create :)


  1. Totally agree Trishie, taking thank you one step further is a lovely concept, one l'm sure most would really appreciate..:0) love the soft colour with the pop of black. Xx

  2. Can't agree more. It's so lovely to give and receive appreciation. Love the contrast between bold black and the soft lighter colours you've chosen. That die cut 'thanks' is perfect. xxx

  3. Yes, I totally agree too, Trish - it used to be more common before the techno advances but always appreciated. I love your black, white with a pop of subtle colour combination - so elegant! And the fabulous "big thanks" is gorgeous too xx

  4. This is a really lovely thank you card Trish! I am loving these colours together and the elements you've used are fab!


Thanks for taking the time to leave some love xox
