Just Add...Colour Combo - JAI#34

Thank god it's Friday ~

August and September seem to be really busy months for me. No particular reason either. I just find myself flat out and trying to achieve everything that needs to happen ... and feel I'm constantly trying to catch up despite how many ticks go against my 'to do' list. This is my fairly poor excuse for being a bad blogger lately :o)

Here is my card for our Just Add Ink challenge this week. I love the Petal Pizzazz set and thought it would be perfect for these pretty feminine colours. The little curly pieces of 'ribbon' are thin slivers of c/s scraps curled around my paper piercer, and to stiffen them up I've coated them very gently in Crystal Effects. That gorgeous sentiment is from the level 3 Hostess set Occasional Quotes.

My photography is worse than ever! I even made myself a light box! I think it needs a little refining and instead of photographing and submitting my dt card at the very last minute (late at night) I had better have a little play and practice with my new lighting system first.

Head on over to JAI and check out the other gorgeous dt creations. I'm sure something will inspire you to want to sit and play along with us :o)
