JAI #260 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
well myself and many of the Just Add Ink design team have an exciting week ahead of us this week as we are all heading to the SU! South Pacific Inspire, Create and Share event (aka convention) (Big smile). Because we are going to be  - just a little busy next week :o - we are going to run the new Just Add Ink challenge for two weeks.  This week we want you to Just Add a Sketch  - a real classic from Narelle.

Here's what I came up with.

It has been a while since I've play with my Spiral flower die so I pulled it out and made something a little bold and bright to really shine against the neutral vintagey background. As you can imagine this turned out very dimensional - but luckily I was able to hand deliver it (in a big envelope) with promises it will not be opened till Mother's Day.

Remember you have two weeks to play along with the sketch (close date 6th May) - so I hope you can join us. Do go check out all the DT projects - they are inspiring!!

And I might add so are the DT girls - I'm really looking forward to catching it with lots of the team in just another 4 sleeps!
