Just Add Ink #264 - Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday friends ~

If you read this post you'll know we were off to a house auction last Saturday morning.  I'm very pleased to say we won the auction!  Woohoo!  The next two months are going to be busy busy with putting our current house on the market, packing and sorting...the logistics of a move can be quite daunting.  I'm already having sleepless nights because my mind is churning with all that needs to be done.  Sigh.

Over at Just Add Ink this week Kim has given us a lovely sketch challenge to work with.

I've used a Blackberry Bliss base - love this rich colour.  The softer, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla toned dsp is an old SU paper from my stash.  The Sweet Life roses are inked with Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss.

This card went all the way across to Western Australia for a lovely birthday lady - hope your special day was wonderful yesterday Chantell.

If you'd like to give this sketch a whirl head over to JAI for the details, and lots of design team inspiration.

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Those colours are absolutely gob-smackingly wonderful! Speechless with delight at them, Thanks for the kind comments over the month. They were much appreciated.

  2. P you have been stamping the most beautiful flowers recently! Love these dark beauties and how lush and rich they are against that fab stripy DSP. xxx

  3. This is so elegant Patrice! The flowers look so deep and rich and the effect on pairing them with the clean and soft DSP is simply stunning! Congrats on the house auction too and I hope all the arrangements go smoothly over the next few months. xx

  4. Congrats on your auction win! Absolutely beautiful card here - those flowers and the colour scheme make it look so rich and elegant. Just gorgeous!

  5. Thank you so much Patrice, it was so lovely to receive this beautiful card in my letter box - it's now displayed in my craft room where I can see it. Congrats on the new house - what an exciting time - hard work of moving ahead, but it will be worth it. Chantell x x

  6. I bet you have a list a mile long with all you have to get done. Will be wonderful once its all over and your in your new home. Your card is so elegant, love that Blackberry colour. And those roses look so much like ones from my garden. Beautiful card and I hope you are getting some sleep somewhere.....

  7. Patrice, this is stunning and elegant. This is the finest showcase of Blackberry Bliss! It gives those stunning roses so much depth. Beautiful combo and what a gorgeous card for your friend to receive in her mailbox!
