Just Add Ink #390 Sketch

Hi there,
to end the week here on the blog I have switched out of Christmas mode. It just so happened that this week's Just Add Ink challenge was just perfect to make a birthday card for my Dad. This week Narelle is asking us to Just Add a Sketch. It's a classic sketch that you can turn to any occasion. Here it is.

And here is what I made for my Dad.

It's getting harder now to come up with original ideas that my Dad would like. I was struggling till I thought - coffee. he definitely likes his coffee, and I figured with 85 years under his belt he would appreciate the sentiment too! I kept it pretty stripped down, just adding a couple of strips of ribbon to add texture and some vellum leaves (Oh and some sequins, but being black I figure they count as acceptable masculine bling :)
The Just Add Ink team have lots of fabulous inspiration for you so do go check them out and then show us your take on the sketch.

Thanks for visiting,
