Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #15

Happy Friday!!!! Hope you've had a fabulous week and better still have a FABULOUS weekend.

It's time for another Inskspiration Challenge, and this week we have a SKETCH.... I do LOVE a sketch!!!!!

I really, REALLY enjoyed working with the sketch that Keesh set this week. And while the temptation to pull out my beloved Circle Circus set AGAIN almost took over.. I say almost, because in fear of you all getting SICK of me using it, I opted to add an extra card to my Chrissy stash... and I'm actually really happy with the outcome. Gosh hope you like it !!! hahaha.

Ooooh and now for the great sketch:-

I actually got the inspiration for this card from and absolutely STUNNING card I saw at the Perth Regionals last week. It was one of those jaw dropping, couldn't speak for a moment moments... the creator of said card was Tina Dickman... and YAY.. Tina has now posted her gorgeous card to her blog here, so be sure to pop on over and have a look... you wont be disappointed.

I started out with a base of Kraft... (well if I wasn't using Circle Circus, I couldn't NOT use Kraft!!! hahaha) then added a layer of White and some DSP from Ski Slope (in Baja Breeze). I used some Baja Breeze Dbl Stitched Ribbon and some Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon across the middle. I stamped my Poinsettia stamp from Season of Joy in Versamark then embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder mixed with a little Dazzling Diamonds then added a Rhinestone to the centre. There is a Kiwi Kiss Circle behind it just to bring it out a little more and also a White Scallop so it didn't get lost on the background. The sentiment is from my Hostess Set "Best Yet" and I used my White Embossing powder on that too. The Brads were silver and I dabbed them in Versamark and White embossing powder to make them White!!!.

Be sure to pop on over to the other Inkspiration DT girls blogs for some more AMAZING inspiration:-
