Its fireworks and bling at Inky Impressions challenge blog today

Hello again

I'm back with my second post of the day.  It's supposed to be my Inky Impressions post but there's no Inky Impressions card from me today!! I started off full of good intentions that I would post this week (its not my week but I really liked the challenge and wanted to do it).

Inky impressions are being sponsored by Kenny K this week  and that was another good reason to join in!  I saw this Kenny K special 4th of July digi and knew it was perfect for my nephews 21st birthday card, that was a few weeks ago so I decided to keep it for this challenge.  I made the box to match and tied it up with red white and blue twine and I had put a little money pouch underneath the easel to give him money for his birthday.  When I gave him the box at his party (he was keeping all of his presents to open when he got home)  - he was really puzzled as to what was in the box - bet he didn't expect a sassy little girl!!

I really pushed the boat out with this one and got the 4th of July papers from Raspberry Road as well (at least I think that's what it was- it was weeks ago and I can only half remember - they're definitely Raspberry road!!)

I had a great idea for my Inky card too - but it never got any further than that - my Grandson Jacob was christened at the weekend and we had a party for 60 people afterwards in our house and I'm afraid my inky card got lost in the preparations!  Here is Jacob his with his Mammy and Daddy - my daughter Alison and son in law Steven. As you can see Jacobs a bit of a bruiser and he's really long- he's only 6 months old but is now into 12-18 months size clothes - he's got legs like tree trunks -his Mammy had legs like those when she was a baby - thankfully they slimmed down when she got bigger!!)

Anyway - back to the card

This is what I did...

Digi - Kenny K 4th of July
Coloured with copics and prismacolour pencils
Papers - raspberry road - 4th July (I think!)
Sentiment (I'm not a troublemaker)- Whimsy stamps
Happy birthday circular sentiment - Lili of the valley
