JAI#199: Fresh Prints Happiness

Hello Crafters,

This week, I am doing something out of the ordinary and having my first go at a sketch challenge at Just Add Ink! Yay me!!!!

Having never participated in a sketch before, I am very nervous and made a card that is not really my style. It is quite busy, when I usually make fairly clean style cards.

I have tried to stay with the circle elements, but have placed the ribbon to the opposite side.  Here’s what I came up with, using the beautiful Fresh Prints Designer Series paper. I love these colours together and when just had to have this paper stack.

JAI Challenge

This Designer Series paper stack will be available during Sale-a-bration, starting 28th January through to 31st March . Be sure to email a request for your brochures today and you will be sure to love the new products too. There are also FREE products to choose from with every $90 spent!
