Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #13

Hi There!!! Hope you are all well. It's been a CRAZY week here in the Kale' abode... trying to organise my little darling Ella's FIRST birthday party... ONE already... I'm still trying to accept the fact that she is growing up!!! There's still photos to be scrapped, balloons to be pumped, Cake to be made... OH and most importantly STAMPIN' to be done!!!

This week the GORGEOUS Keesh has set an Inspiration Challenge, and here is the little card I've made for it:-

Here is the lovely Inspiration picture:-

I started out with a base of Real Red, then added some Sahara Sand and some Real Red DSP from Summer Picnic (retired), to that I added another layer of Sahara Sand and some striped DSP from my Dashing pack (unfortunately also retired) ... SORRY about all the retired goodies today!!!!. I used this paper though because it resembled the stripes on the table cloth.
I stamped my flower image from my Circle Circus set in Real Red and stamped it slightly off the edge then stamped my sentiment in Sahara Sand.

All in all a pretty simple card this week, but for fear of over crowding or over embelishing ( is there such a thing??? hahaha) I opted to leave it nice and simple. I hope you like.

Don't forget to pop on over to the other Inkspiration DT girls blogs for some AMAZING inspiration:-

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Best Yet (Hostess), Circle Circus
Paper:- Real Red, Sahara Sand textured, Very Vanilla, Dashing DSP (retired), Summer Picnic DSP (retired)
Ink:- Real Red, Sahara Sand
Accessories:- Dimensionals.
