JAI 213 Just Add Inspiration

Hello there,
can you believe its already May!! This year is flying past. Right now is one of my favourite times of year because of the beautiful Autumn colours that are everywhere. Just seeing those jewel bright colours contrasted against the blue sky makes me happy :)

I have to say that the challenge we have for you at Just Add Ink this week is one that made me happy too. This week its an inspiration challenge - pick what inspires you from the picture - patterns, colours and go have fun!

And here is what I came up with for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. 

One to show you the fabulous shimmer and shine.

The inside.

The inspiration picture was just perfect for celebrating such a special family occasion. Gold adds such richness and of course Gold = 50 years. How perfect was that! I loved the detail the chevron adds and I pulled the pink and blue from the photo to represent bubbly bubbles, and love that it also represents the two halves of their long partnership. 

I'll also confess it to being the first time I've used a tiled panel, it just seemed perfect for this!

Hope you can join in the fun. Do check out the rest of the JAI DT for wonderful inspiration.
