Just Add...Sketch JAI#36

Happy Friday ~

We have a gorgeous sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink this week. I was super organised with this card and had it done last weekend ... until I realised I didn't have any of the new black satin ribbon yet. I wanted to have that 'ruffled' bit a lovely big loose satin bow. Not to be, couldn't get my order here on time so the 'ruffle' it is. You don't want to know all the ribbon dramas I had believe me :o)

I layered Very Vanilla on Basic Black c/s and used some of my new Love Letter dsp ... mmmmmm, it's lovely. My Vintage Vogue flowers are clear embossed and quite glossy irl. I've used one of the new Antique Brads in the centre - you can just make it out in the pic - these brads are divine and I can see myself using them lots! Little piece of the new bling there too. The sentiment is from the level 3 hostess gift Occasional Quotes and you can just see my matching envelope at bottom - a la Mary Fish style.

The photo doesn't do this card justice, embossing is hard to photograph at the best of times, but this card has shadows all over - best I could do unfortunately - the weather didn't want to play nicely and I was in a hurry, not the best combo for a good outcome.

Head on over to JAI and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the other DT girls! It's worth the look :o)

School holidays start here in Canberra this weekend so we'll be getting into relaxed mode in our house, I love the non routine of holidays. Hoping I get some stamping done too so that I can start posting here a little more regularly again :o)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. Oooooooooooo P - this is so lovely! Love all your little added touches - GO YOU!

  2. This looks totally fabulous Patrice. Love how striking the black and vanilla are together and that ruffle looks as though it was meant to be!! I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on those vintage brads too :)

  3. That's a great card. Black flowers - unusual but very interesting.

  4. I love black and white (black and very vanilla!)! Love that ribbon!!!
