Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #39

Hi there,
I sat down on Friday night and crafted with Imogen. Imogen gave me a colour challenge Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, whisper white and I added basic black. My colour challenge for Imogen is Poppy Parade, Peach Parafait, Pear Pizzazz with a neutral.

So I incorporated my challenge with this weeks sketch challenge from Makeesha. Check it out HERE to play along.

Yep I have been having sooo much fun play with my new stamps, punch and that beautiful Satin Ribbon, I still have some satin ribbon shares left if you like to partipate just let me know.

I have kept it simple and embossed the stunning stamp set elements of style. What do you think? I have a embossing class in a couple of weeks if you would like to attend contact me at

Oh my, what a stunning card. This is so beautiful...I love the way you have stamped the elements of style and made it tone on tone, it looks gorgeous. And the extra elements of the bird and hodgepodge really make this card.
So beautiful, a wonderful take on Keesh's sketch.
Have a great day.
