Just Add Ink #295 - Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday beautiful blog friends ~

Wow, we had some A-Mazing entries to our Blog Hop challenge over at Just Add Ink last week.  Be sure to check out the chosen winners stunning creations.  Thanks to all who joined the fun!

This week, Tina has provided us a sketch challenge ( I'll post it at bottom) and I was a bit stumped. Thought hot air balloons, butterflies, hearts....and then remembered my Painted Flowers stamp set. Perfect!  Here it is in all its simplicity, a one layer card with a pop of pink.  The base is the gorgeous SU Shimmer White c/s.

I've covered my sentiment completely in Crystal Effects.  It gives such a luscious dimensional sheen.

We'd love you to join the challenge and link up your entries so please pop over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration.  Here is the sketch:

We have a long weekend in Australia, well sort of.  Next Tuesday is Australia Day, and generally most who can will take the Monday off work to enjoy a four day weekend.  We're meeting up with a bunch of friends on the lawns of Parliament House for the annual concert on Monday evening.  Good food, good friends, good music, good atmosphere.  What more could one want?!

Whatever your weekend involves, I hope it's a great one!  Thanks for stopping by today.
