JAI 172 Just add Inspiration

Hello there, 
well with the beginning of the new Stampin Up! year here in the South Pacific we (Just Add Ink) thought it would make a great challenge to kick it off using the new catalogue front cover as an inspiration challenge. 

So this week we want you to Just Add Inspiration - it might be the colours, the banners, the flowers, the frame or even the shoes. You can take it where you want - that's the fun of an inspiration challenge!

And this was the outcome.

I couldn't resist the frame - and I just love this ornate one I pulled out to use to frame the birthday cake - well cupcake - which I glittered up - of course ;) The inspiration pic also inspired the bunting. I love the stripy banner I used, but to change it up a little I used a different framelit to cut it and it worked perfectly! Blushing Bride was the perfect pink to use for this and I must admit it is fast becoming a firm favourite of mine! 

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for fabulous inspiration ideas and welcome Louise and Susan for their first DT pieces too.
