JAI#156 - Just Add a Colour Challenge

Hi lovely blog friends ~

Yay it's Friday and it's a long weekend here in Canberra as we're celebrating our 100th birthday!  Gorgeous Kid and I are off to Culburra Beach with our dear friends for some sunshine and relaxation.  The weather is forecast to be perfect.

Over at Just Add Ink this week our super lovely Christine set us a colour challenge.  Yummy colours - Early Espresso, Raspberry Ripple and Bashful Blue.

I made this little gift box for a special person in my life - can't reveal the contents just yet though :o) as I haven't passed it on.

I decorated one of the gorgeous Kraft Gift Boxes on pg 161 of the current SU catalogue using the In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack - Raspberry Ripple.  It's tied closed with some retired Early Espresso ribbons and a little tag from the Hearts a Flutter set out of the current Seasonal.  Love that set and the matching Framelits.  Makes crafting and cutting a breeze.

Do pop over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration.  Hope you'll join our challenge this week.  I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Oh, this is GORGEOUS, P! What an inspired way to use the challenge colours - I love it. The little tag is great ... must remember to use that stamp!

  4. Oooh you've made the colours look warm, inviting and a little luscious all wrapped up with the ribbon P. I love the how your eye is drawn to the tag by the pop of the pale blue. Have fun down the coast. Hope to see you soon! xxx

  5. Oh so delish P. Speccy gifts are always even morso when they come wrapped like this. Stunning job. Have a magical day at the beach. ooxx

  6. WOW Patrice, lucky recipient! There is always something so elegant about brown and pink. Hope you enjoyed the beach.

  7. Great job with the colours P and great idea to go 3D! Cute and classy and l love the tag idea (may have to case that one). xxx

  8. You did a great job with those colours, and I do love the SU boxes, such a great base to start with, the tag is a really great idea too. I am sure it was well received xx
