Just Add Ink, JAI 128 and Paper Players 106


It is time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and here is the lovely inspiration picture we have to work with:

 And here is my card:

When I saw the beautiful bouquet of summery flowers my eyes focused on Hot Pink and green... a little obsession with Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi, I know, and then of course The Cheerful Treat DSP!!!

I have seen this little dress made with the scallop circle die on the internet and wanted to make my version of it. I could not resist to using one of my favorite DSP's, Cheerful Treat (along with Mocha Morning :-). I made sure I got a few packs of this before it retired for my personal stash. I love the wild wasabi and melon mambo combo and those little flowers are to die for!)

After I cut the DSP with the scallop die i folded it kind of 3/4 and then just snipped it, no measuring, and it turned out pretty good. I added a layer of the Eyelet Border (this was a little tedious as it had to be cut in 4-5 pieces and arranged underneath to give the impression of a semi circle), a bit of Rose Red 1/4" Grossgrain ribbon and a couple of Bitty Shapes flowers and voila, a gorgeous little card.

I created a little window with the scallop punch and added the sentiment inside! Saw that recently at a fellow demonstrator and really liked the look!

This is another version on blue that: 

is PERFECT for the Paper Players PP 106 Challenge:

I went with the left option: Circles, Blue, Floral :-)
