Sweet Sunday Sketch #62 meets Just Add Ink #10

Wow!!! That was a mouthful!!!

Happy Sunday!!! Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. It seems that Perth has mostly recovered from our FREAK storm during the week and the sun has decided to grace us once again!!

FINALLY I've managed to participate in a Just Add Ink Challenge... it's only taken me 10 weeks.. SORRY GIRLS!!!!! When I saw the little swatch in my Google Reader for Just Add Ink.. my heart skipped a little beat... from the small picture it looked like a combination of Kraft and Pinks... ooohhhh now you can see why my heart skipped a beat!!!!... Well I went on over for a closer looksie and what I believed to be PINK was in fact CAMEO CORAL!!!!! Gasp!!!! However, having already decided to have a go.. I wasn't going to let one little scary colour deter me... so on I went. :D... Now to add to the little addition of an SJ Scary Colour, one of our fabulous Sweet Sunday Stampers... who for today shall NOT remain nameless.... VICKI!!!!!! gave our Head Sweet Stamper Karen a little sketch for us all... AND... it has... wait for it.... A TILTED PANEL!!!!! like I said.... VICKI!!!!! hahah ( Don't worry folks.. Vicki knows we love her... just not her funny tilted panel ideas.. hahaha)... soooo what I'm trying to say is that I've conquered not ONE, but TWO scary moments on the one card... hopefully the results don't scare you away!!!

Ok... So it would appear I've gotten a little carried away, so I best get onto the Eye Candy before you all disappear. SORRY!!!! :D

Here is my card:-

And here is the CRAZY tilted panel sketch (hahaha):-

And here is the lovely Just Add Ink Colour combo:-

I've busted open a NEW goodie today for this one... A wee little punch that will be available NEXT WEEK in the NEW Autumn Mini Catalogue... oooh it's LOVELY!!!!! Actually I think I've just passed with the Just Add INK component... A little bit of sponging and a little sentiment.. phew.. LUCKY!!!

I've used Kraft as my base and layered some Close to Cocoa and DSP from Candy Lane with a layer of Cameo Coral and some ribbon from my stash which just so happened to be a PERFECT match to Blush Blossom... AWESOME!!!! The TILTED Panel is a layer of Cocoa and Blush Blossom which I've sponged around the edges and then added some Paper Piercing to.
