JAI 165 Just add woodgrain

Hello there,
well we are back with a very fun challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink. This week we want you to Just Add Woodgrain. Having just got back recently from Hawaii I had tropical blooms still on my mind so I went rather very bright!

I did say bright didn't I :) I couldn't resist going the whole way and making a "wood" frame that was Melon Mambo with the inside edge rolled in Real Red. (Just imagine the really really pink/red fingers I had after stamping that!). The flowers really do remind me of the gorgeous hibiscus flowers we saw in Hawaii. Beautiful combinations of yellow, red and pink. To tone it down (just a little) I used black accents and sentiment. 

Thanks for visiting, hope you can join us this week and don't forget to check out the fabulous woodgrain inspiration from the rest of the DT.
