Just Add Ink #268 - Sketch

It's almost the weekend - yippee!

The bubba, my Mum and I are heading on a little road trip tomorrow and it will be about 5 hours driving all up (there and back).  It's a lot of driving for one day and I hope my wee little one behaves and doesn't get too bored.  I must say I'm a bit nervous about being out for the whole day and not being able to let bub have a good sleep, of course he will sleep for some of the time in the car but that still doesn't make up for a nice big sleep in his cot.

Anyway onto the reason why we are here.... the sketch challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

I was really looking forward to working with this sketch and I had quite a few ideas in my mind but I couldn't translate any of them onto paper!
Arrrggg how frustrating!!!
Does that ever happen to you?

After making a few different cards I finally settled on this card for a lovely couple who've just had their first baby!

I added a little sparkly heart for a little bling :)

The Design team have created some BEAUTIFUL cards this week and I'm so envious that they nailed this sketch!!!!!

I really hope you have time to join in the fun and link up your creation here.

Just Add Ink #266 - Colour Combo

I love the colour combo challenge we have at Just Add Ink this week - Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette and Gold :)

I think it's super girly even with the dark blue and I can't wait to make many many more cards using it.

I'm not sure if the idea of cutting out a piece of the background came from my head or if I saw it on pinterest??
That's what sleep deprivation will do to your brain :P

I embossed the background with the swiss dots folder and then used my gold ink pad to colour the tops of the dots!

I don't have any Night of Navy ink so I've used the retired Midnight Muse and I may have used a couple of extra pinks too - you can never have too many pinks :P

I'd love to see how you use these colours so please show us by linking up at Just Add Ink.
If you need some inspiration the Design Team have come up with some beautiful cards this week!
