Just Add Ink Debut

Just Add Ink is a new challenge blog that I've noticed popping up on a few blogs - in fact one of my friends featured in the Top 5 last week!! (Yay Leah!!). I was looking for a nice bright colour combo for a colleagues birthday card today and Just Add Ink Challenge 7 provided just the inspiration...

These colours are just gorgeous together and I just had to pull out my Kaleidoscope DSP; Joy Fold cards work SO well with DSP, so the card comes together quite quickly (a bonus as I put this together today at the last minute 'cause I fell asleep early again last night).
A closer squiz at the 'holder' part - I managed to line up the petals on the circle with the petals on the greeting part of the card.

A peek at the inside.
Tini loved it, so I was quite chuffed, and she had a great afternoon!
Happy Birthday Tini (21 again!!).

Stamps: All Year Cheer II (retired), Friendship Blooms (retired)

Hi Natasha - welcome to Just Add Ink! I hope you'll join us again. :-)

What a gorgeous card - you've balanced the colours so well. They're all vibrant, but none overshadow any others. Great job! Thanks for playing!

Well, I learnt something today. I didn't know those cards were called Joy fold cards! I love making those but haven't done one for ages. You've inspired me! Great card. Thanks for entering the challenge at JAI.
