Inkspiration Sketch #21

appy Friday!!! It's time for another Inkspiration Challenge and this week it's everybody's FAVOURITE... a SKETCH!!!... I do LOVE a sketch. I have to say this one is one of my FAVES from Keesh... really easy to work with, FABULOUS.

Here's my card for today:-

After I'd gotten my post ready, I was just kinda sitting and looking at my card and thought it needed a little something, something!!!
So, I added a little ruffle along the Kraft ribbon... What do you think. I must apologise for my photo... I'll get a better one up as soon as my computer is being a little more amicable... it's running a BIG bit slow today!!! arrgg

And here's Keesh's FABULOUS sketch:-

I've kept mine really Clean and Simple today.. actually the only part that is stamped is the sentiment!!!!
I've been dying to use my little "Sweet Pea" flowers.. oh my goodness... they are SERIOUSLY GORGEOUS!!!!!... They were a sweet little pressie I got a few weeks ago... and well one of those little pressies that you just have to sit and look at for a wee while, whilst mustering up the gumption to actually USE them on a project... also one of those well little gifties that you simply MUST give to someone special, someone you know will admire these little treasures in all their glory and NEVER, EVER dispose of them... hahaha. Ok I'll stop with my Sweet Pea obsession now... oh but wait... SORRY!!.. I used some more of my SWEET PEA DSP... have I mentioned that that is as DIVINE as the little flowers.. and just as hard to CUT into... hahaha... Anyone else have that problem... having all this PRETTY paper, and not being able to CUT it!!! hahah

Ok.. back to the card.. I've also used some Rose Red 1" Dbl Stitched Grosgrain and some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, and plonked some more brads into some SPARKLES to add a wee bit of BLING!!!

So cute. These flowers are on my wishlist (actually planned to get some as a little treat for you at Convention, doh!!) I just love them!

Fiona Harrison said...

PS you are now the ruffled ribbon queen, looks fabbo!

Renée said...

I love both version, but the second definitely has a little more "oomph"! The ruffled ribbon was a perfect addition!

Just beautiful Sarah-Jane. I do love those flowers and I also would want to hoard them. I do that with a lot of my stuff. Sad isn't it?! I love the ruffled ribbon one!
