Some favourite swaps from Sydney Convention ...
Vintage a Rose is a Rose ....

Out of my comfort zone ....

Just when I got all excited about doing my first Just Add Ink challenge, they went and gave me a bright colour challenge - Melon Mambo, Taken with Teal and Elegant Eggplant. Now I love each of those colours, but if you follow my blog you will know I'm a vintage, shabby, muted kinda girl (and my cards too, lol). But hey, that's what challenges are for right? Luckily I did have to whip up a quick card for Sam to take to a party today, a gymnastics party for one of his lovely friends from creche. So instead of a quick card I rose to the challenge - what girl doesn't like flowers and butterflies right? So here is JAI Challenge 19.

JAI Challenge May 29

Here's the Stampin' Up! products I have used:

  • Stamps: Scribble Jumbo Wheel, Cheep Talk and Butterfly Prints
  • Cardstock / Ink: Taken with Teal, Whisper White, Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo.
  • Accessories: Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon, Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon, rhinestone brads, Bigshot and Timeless Type Junior Alphabet.

Thanks for popping by. Lovely to be doing some challenges again, have a couple more I'd like to do this week but it's back to shabby and vintage for me!!

This is really lovely. Love how you've coloured the wheel stamp! Beautiful!

This is a great card Claire, and I am sure the recipient loved it!

Well, Claire, you certainly rose to the challenge!! Love the stamped wheel and the MM ribbon tied with EE. A bright and gorgeous card. It's great you could play along this week!

Don't let the bright colours scare you by the look of this great card you can do it!

This is a really pretty card Claire. I also love how you have coloured in the wheel. Such bright colours but such a gorgeous, pretty, girly card. x Louise
