Flower Cross - Just Inklined

Good morning my lovelies .... another dry day here and hubby is working hard to try and finish his shed before we go on our hols. It is looking good so far, it just amazes me how men can just build these things from scratch. I suppose it is a bit like us crafters making cards hey :o)

So here is my very first card for the Just Inklined DT. It is really nice to colour something different to my usual cute. 


 This beautiful image is called 'Flower Cross' and is so easy to colour.



I usually pick my papers first and then colour my image to match but this time I just coloured my image first. I then went through my papers to see what would match. I found these lovely papers by Basic Grey and I think they match perfectly. I might start doing it this way a little more often because I have had these forever and doubt I would have thought to use them for this card.





Lots of pretty pearls and flowers (and some punching too) to finish it all off. There are lots of wonderful cards for inspiration over on the Just Inklined Blog so make sure you pop over for a look. 

Challenges:


The Pink Elephant - Sketch
Daisy Doodles - Anything Goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Show us your Style (lots of embellies and papers)
Totally Gorjuss - Something Yellow


Have a wonderful day xxx
