Inkspiration Challenge {sketch #19}

Happy Friday!!! Hope you've all had a fabulous week. It's Friday, which not only means it's the weekend tomorrow, BUT that it's time for another Inkspiration Challenge.

This week we've got a Sketch challenge, which are always fun and here is my card:-

Here is Keesh's sketch so you can play along:-

I've made my card using Kiwi Kiss, Choc Chip and Kraft. My intention to begin with was to make a Blokey kinda card... Kiwi Kiss, Choc Chip and Kraft are pretty good for a blokey kinda card don't you think? BUT... and I emphasize the BUT... I couldn't help myself and had to add a couple of little flowers under the tree... well it just looked SO lonely there on it's own... hahaha
It was also about time that I pulled out my Trendy Trees set.. (LOVE, LOVE that set... again going on my BLokey card feel) then thought it might be fun to add some Hodgepodge.. you know the tin filled with GOODIES that has been sitting on my desk for AGES and not been used!!!, as a focal point of the tree. The sentiment is from my Trendy Trees set also and is stamped in Kiwi Kiss and Real Red and just to add a little bit of depth and dimension to my Krafty bits I've sponged around the edges with some Choc Chip.

So there you go... hope you like this little Tree... and be sure to pop on over and see what the other Inkspiration DT have made for you to see, I'm sure you WONT be disappointed:-





Don't forget to link your card to Mr Linky on Keesh's blog too, so that we can all have a looksie at what you've created.
