JAI#53...Inspiration Challenge

Good Friday evening ~

The Just Add Ink design team had a fabulous inspiration pic as our 'brief' for this week.

Now because it's an inspiration pic you can take it any way you want - bright bursts of colour as Amanda and Danielle named it, flowers, colours, anything. I went with a 'Wonderfully Wrapped' box this week. There is lots of room in this one and I know just who is going to receive it full of special goodies :o)

My little project has a base of Naturals Ivory and October Afternoon dsp. I've coloured a couple of the Pretties flowers with markers, and a corduroy brad too. I've used the Pumpkin Pie Satin ribbon for the bows on either side of the box, and some of the 1/8" Taffeta ribbon fastened with a clear Rhinestone brad. There are also a few Floral Fusion flowers for decoration around the box handle.

If you have the time to play with us this week head on over to JAI and check out the DT inspiration to get you started. There are some gorgeous designs and ideas!

I've had a valentine card sitting on my desk completed all week, must take a pic and share it with you (along with our Australia day celebrations and other fun activities). I hope to get some stamping time in this weekend too. Whatever you're doing I hope it's fun :o)


  1. This is a gorgeous project with gorgeous DSP and a mix of bright flowers and ribbon - love it.

  2. Love all the flowers and bows you have embellished your box with - someone is going to very happy when this lands on their doorstep! I'm going to have add colour pretties flowers on my do soon list!

  3. Stunning box, love it to bits.

  4. I just loved this when I saw it on the JAI site! You've combined the DSP, flowers and ribbon beautifully! GO YOU!!


  5. Absolutely, gorgeously colourful Box Patrice!

  6. What a beautiful bright, cheery box that just invites a peek inside!

  7. oooohh it's very cute!! You're so clever!!! :)

  8. Lurve this project Patrice. I think it's a FAB take on the sketch. The box is devine and the flowers finish it off beautifully. Great gift for that someone speccy. ooxx
