Inkspiration Inspiration #20

I can't believe it's FRIDAY already!!!... WOW.. these weeks are flying by. My gorgeous flossies and I have been trying to break some sort of 'Playground/Park/Zoo' record this past few weeks... and can I say I'm EXHAUSTED!!!!.

Anyhoo... I'm sure you didn't pop in to hear about our playground antics so onto the reason you're here... to see what fabulous challenge Keesh has set for us this week. Well... it's an Inspiration ... so I do hope you'll play along.

Here is my card for this week:-

And here is our Inspiration picture, so you can play along:-

I've gone with a colour combo of Creamy Caramel, Choc Chip and Very Vanilla for my card and pulled out my FABULOUS new Extra Large 2-step Bird Punch which is available in the new Mini... can I say.. if it's a QUICK and amazing looking card you're after... this little.. well OK BIG punch is your answer... be sure to contact me if you'd like to get your hands on one.. you wont be disappointed!!!
I've used a Ruffle Ribbon again... don't panic I'll be over it soon.. hahaha... my little secret is to cut a piece of cardstock the same width as the ribbon and to the length I want my ruffle to be, then apply my STICKY STRIP and ruffle away, so I guess you could say I have created a 'Floating' ruffle. If you'd like me to show you how, be sure to leave a comment, and I'll get my tutorial butt in to gear and get something together for you :D.

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Inkspiration DT for some amazing inspiration:-

Your card is just so beautiful Sarah-Jane. I adore this punch and plan on playing with it lots more. Very inspiring and I love how you shadowed it with a second bird.

Too funny Karen! If you have been stalking my blog (haha) you definately would have seen some things that fit your description!! LOL!

Love the polka dot bird and the lovely ruffle. I have to keep your trick of using sticky strip in mind!

Such a lovely interpretation of the pic. Don't think I'll get the bird punch, not really into bird images (&SU always has birds in everything!) but if anyone could sway me, it would be you. You make it so lovely that I'm nearly tempted.
Have a great week,
