JAI 249 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
well after a very interesting (training at work), chaotic (travelling and the daily work/home juggle) and sad (funeral) week I'm really glad to find that it's Friday! And that's not least because it means it's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge :) This week we have a great sketch from Tina. Here it is - it has lots of potential!

And here is what I came up with. 

My cluster of flowers accented by the pierced frame represents the hexagon elements in the sketch - I probably went overboard on the "stamped" hexagon pattern (done by inking up the Honeycomb embossing folder with ink) but decided to leave it as it was.

The design team has lots of wonderful projects to inspire you so don't forget to check them out and hopefully it will inspire you to join us!
