JAI #155 Sketch Challenge

The challenge sketch at Just Add Ink this week had me a bit frazzled.  For some reason no amount of flipping, rotating or staring would get the creative juices flowing with this one.  But that's why we love challenges isn't it?  I left it for a few days and then came back to it with a fresh pair of eyes, and eventually some ideas started coming- not easily, but they did eventually come.

Here's the sketch......

And here's what I came up with.....

I used the "Up, Up and Away" stamp set, some old DSP and ribbon all from Stampin' Up and some dies from MFT.  Despite being completely stuck when I first saw the sketch, I'm happy to have eventually completed a card for the challenge.


  1. Well your end result is fabulous Louise! I'm so glad you were able to complete your card for this challenge - it's gorgeous! I love the fun-ness to this card and the colours you've used. Great take on this weeks sketch! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!
