JAI 252 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
it's still very summery here but to be honest I'm hanging out for some cooler weather. I love to feel the tinge of autumn in the air or the freshness of spring! Funnily enough though my card this week has a very summery feel. As the starting point I used this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week the challenge is to Just Add a Sketch and it's from me :). Here's the sketch.

And here is my summery card.

One to show your the fabbo embossed chevrons.

I almost like my flower arrangement on the inside better than the one on the front!

This was bascially a let's play with flowers card and I had a lovely time doing it! It did have a serious purpose though as it was intended for a lovely friend for her birthday. The flowers were going to be the star so I kept the rest fairly simple just adding in some shine with embossed chevrons and a scattering of rhinestones.

Hope you can join us this week and show us what you did with the sketch! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for some stunning projects.
