Keesh's Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #4


When I saw Keesh's sketch challenge for this week I had the idea of using some mini chipboard clipboards (say that several times really fast!!) I had in my stash for the main image. Unfortunately when I pulled them out they were a bit too big for what I had in mind so I pinched the clip off and made my own!
After deciding on a Certainly Celery card I then layered Rose Red DP over Regal Rose CS - having punched holes out of each layer first. I placed a large green bit of bling in each hole - I wasn't going to but couldn't help myself! I wrapped some Certainly Celery ribbon around a strip of Regal Rose CS and added a bow. The bow is my first attempt at following Lisa's (the Craft's Meow) tutorial - thanx Lisa - it was fun! This strip was popped up on Dimensionals.

The main image is fairly simple - I tried a few options but my creative mojo is still on strike after our heatwave - it got to 45.1oC/113oF here on Friday - YUK. Anyway, enough dwelling on the heat - back to my card - I ended up stamping the swirls and small flowers from Priceless and the sentiment from Spring Solitude. My "clipboard" is also put up on Dimensionals. A big paper flower and some chunky glitter finished it all off.

I had to laugh when I saw my finished card - I realised I loved pink and green together but then I went to type up my post and saw my laptop and mobile sitting next to each other - hmmmmm, there's a theme here!! LOL

Debbie your card is FABULOUS as usual and always inspiring. I so love the flower and rhinestone bling!! I thought you were giving away some “blog candy”… a lap-top!! WOW! But I read the last paragraph and yes, that is cute! It's funny how we lean to certain colors without realizing it.
My DH and I even dress with the same colors without knowing and we show up separate… We just look at each other and SMILE!! :)
