JAI #287 Just add inspiration

Hello there,
on our side of the world we are speeding our way through spring (I just wish I could spend more time outside to enjoy it!) but of course on the other side of the globe Autumn is settling in. So this week at Just Add Ink Jodene has given us a very seasonally inspired inspiration photo. You can use the images, the colours, patterns or whatever else inspires you for your project this week.

I needed a masculine feeling project a few weeks back so this challenge was a perfect fit.

There's something special inside!

I forgot my FIL's birthday this year :0 so I thought I had better make him something special for Father's Day. For the guys in my family something special = something interactive. This is such a fun and easy pop up fold. It's called a diagonal fold and I found instructions for it here on Julie Davison's blog. Being a guy card I brought lots of texture in with embossing, corrugated cardstock, and the crinkled water coloured leaves (I love how vibrant they turned out). As a backdrop I created a blue sky filled with clouds (simply done with a punched scalloped circle and a sponge).

Don't forget to drop past the rest of the DT for some inspiration! Hope you can join us this week. Thanks for visiting,
