Just Add Ink Challenge #6 - Sketch Challenge


This week's Just add Ink challenge is a sketch challenge:


This challenge came at a great time for me, because I needed a card for some friends who are getting married, and this sketch looked like it would fit the bill beautifully.

Here is my card:



 
List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White
Stamps: Together Forever
Ink: Memento Black and Riding Hood Red Classic Ink
Accessories: Flourish Emboss Folder, Papertrey Ink Black Satin Ribbon, miscellaneous white ribbon, 1 3/8 inch Square punch, 1 1/4 inch Square punch, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots and SNAIL adhesive.


The large white panel has been dry embossed with SU!'s Flourish embossing plate. It is a bit hard to see in the photos, but looks better IRL.

The black 'parcel' in the back of the third picture is the envelope. The card Measures 6 x 5 inches, so it would not fit in a standard envie..hence the hand made jobbie.

Once I'd finished this card I sat back and looked at it and realised it had a distinct Twilight feel to it...this, however, is not a problem for me ;-).

I hope you are having a lovely warm weekend. We probably don't have too many left this year....so I'm making the most of it.

Great card Sam. So tell me...are there going to be Twilight swappers at convention?? Should we get a group together? I'll admit to not having a problem with it either!! LOL

Great card, Sam! It makes a beuatiful, stylish wedding card and I'm sure it was gratefully received! We're having a very HOT weekend here in Perth so I'm keeping cool inside the airconditioned house! Enjoy your weekend!
