Just Add Ink #296 - Just Add Nature

Happy Friday friends ~

It sure is happy for me because this post is scheduled and I'm away at Jervis Bay enjoying an extra long weekend with my beautiful family before school goes back next week.  Gorgeous Kid is starting year 10 (gasp) and the twins are off to preschool.  Time sure passes by quickly these days. Does that mean I'm getting old?  I. Think. So!

Di set the new challenge over at Just Add Ink this week, and she's asking us to add Nature.  Perfect time to unveil my new Botanicals Framelits.  How fun are they?!  I adore the pop up petals.

I absolutely love the Treat Bag Thinlits!  It is one of my most used items.  Here I've decorated using some PTI cardstock - Raspberry Fizz and Lemon Tart for my flowers - I did daub some ink & Wink (of Stella) to them but you can't really see it here, and the lovely subtle Pear Pizzazz for my leaves.

The young adult daughter of a friend of mine had three surgeries this week and I've sent her this little 'feel better' card to wish her well for a speedy recovery.

We'd love you to join our challenge this week.  Pop over to JAI for some inspiration from the design team.  I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations, so be sure to link up.


  1. beautiful card and can see why you love those dies - your friend's daughter will certainly be cheered getting this - have a fantastic weekend!

  2. P this is gorgeous! Love the cluster of flowers, so bright and bold against the text DSP! Add stripey ribbon to the mix and it's an instant hit! This will be guaranteed to make anyone feel better. Have a great weekend. xxx

  3. What a great way to present a Get Well card P. Love your colour choices, the flowers really pop against the black. Love it xox

  4. I LOVE this Patrice! Love the boldness of the black elements and then the pops of colour in your flowers. It all works beautifully with the Typeset DSP in the background! I think in seeing this you have changed my mind on getting those dies. Guess whats on my next order? Rochelle xo

  5. Wow the melon mambo looks fab paired with black! What a pretty project and I love the delicate nature of the leaves too :)

  6. Yes, Wow indeed P - this is a stunning get well card and am sure will help your friend to feel better :-) The soft coloured leaves and neutral DSP really makes the central flower pop! I too, was on the fence re this set and dies until I saw your pretty project this week xx

  7. This is such a gorgeous project P! I love those flowers and the black circle behind them really makes them pop!

  8. Incredible Patrice! Congratulations! This project is one of my most popular pins this week and is being highlighted on my blog today. Thanks for sharing. Kylie xx

  9. How did this beauty escape me? The bold flowers look spectacular on the black circle & typeset paper & the whole package is so very elegant & special. Gorgeous!
