JAI 179 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
I was supposed to be prepping for an upcoming class last week when the idea for my card this week just kind popped in to my head and the prep was cast aside! But this flew together like it was supposed to be together. It's another of these slightly scrappy shabby chic cards and I used the great sketch we have for you this week at Just Add Ink. You can work this in so many ways!

Its only taken me a year but I've discovered Raspberry Ripple and just love the combination with Crisp Cantaloupe and in this case with a dash of Summer Starfruit. I had fun with this card layering on ink and then different embellishy bits and finishing it all off with a sprinkle of bling! Mind you quite a few of the bits and bobs are still "new" and its always fun to break out new stuff and play :)

Do check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous ideas on how to play with this sketch. Thanks for visiting,
