JAI 269 and CAS(E)130

I managed to fit in one more card last night. Another combination card with colours from Just Add Ink and a sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.

The colours are indeed delightful, so soft and dreamy. It perhaps hasn't photographed quite so well but the large flower is in Pool Party, stamped with Lost Lagoon which, in real life, makes it pop a bit from the Soft Sky background.

Update: Delighted to be Top Pick at Just Add Ink with this card!

Card: Tip Tip Taupe, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Pool Party
Stamps: SU Flower Shoppe and Petite Petals, Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents, Hero Arts Thank You
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Tip Top Taupe
Other: Lost Lagoon satin ribbon, Soft Sky candy dots, brad base, linen twine, Kaisercraft nested frames, Pansy punch, dimensionals, Lost Lagoon marker pen.

  4. Oh, Jan, this is stunning! "Dreamy" is a good word to describe your creation. You've used the challenge colours to perfection, and your take on the sketch is beautiful. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink!

  5. Oh my this is gorgeous! Way to rock the sketch :)

  6. everything about your card is beautiful!!

  7. How gorgeous, that central flower is spectacular and you used the challenge colours perfectly!! And love that curvy edge by the bottom of your card, so good for the CTS challenge. Always so happy to see you at Just Add Ink too! Are you freezing today?? We are so cold, there is no sun and no warmth but not as bad as further down South. We always miss out on the bad weather here but would love to have a little bit of snow for the kids. Its 4.16pm and I've already closed all the curtains and the fire is roaring. Thank goodness we didn't have to go anywhere today!!

    1. Thanks Shona. I've got the curtains closed and the heat pump on too! Rainy and miserable but not as cold - but the cold is coming this way, judging by the forecast.

  8. Stunning!....Such an elegant and beautiful card Jan, love the border panel...Great effect! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  9. Jan this is beautifully elegant! I love how you echoed the shape of the die cut with the border below. The leafy details really make the blues of your flower pop too! Glad you could join us again at Just Add Ink.
