first challenge at Inky Inspirations for this inkette!!

Hello again

Here I am back again with my very first DT post for Inky inspirations.

The challenge for this week is lots of Ribbons and here's the card to go with it

Fairy on a clothes pin from Ink Impressions
the inside

This little cutie is an Inky Impessions digistamp called Fairy on a Clothespin, isn't she just so sweet!

Why don't you sort out your ribbon box (it'll need sorting if its like mine!) and rustle up a card for this week s challenge - see you over there!

Inky Impressions Challenges

Have to say I couldn't get it together with my papers at all when I started to design this card -one went in the bin - but as fate would have it I won a gorgeous set of digipapers over at Robyns Fetish challenge last week, they are from Bearly Mine Designs and I really just love them.  I chose two slightly contrasting papers for the in and outside of the card.  The great thing about the papers is they have a sort of white distressed border to them that you can colour up to tone into your design with distress inks - I really am quite taken with these papers and there was 42 in the set - I already have several more in my sights!!  Another great thing I found were those great jewels.  I was shopping in Tescos and there they were a huge bag - all colours, shapes sizes in the kids craft section for 99p - hows that for a great buy.

This is what I did .....
