INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 36 -

Welcome to our blog hop this fortnight.
Thanks for joining in and please do take the time to hop around all the posts
You may have hopped across from Narelle
and I always love what she makes. 
I was lucky enough to be out walking with my camera 
and came across this echnida..
Look how long his beak is - he was too busy finding ants to be scared of me!

Teneale has designed a lovely sketch this fortnight

I started with my base card of Pink Pirouette. I adhered my long sections of Pink Pirouette onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock which I ran thru the Big Shot using the gorgeous Softly Falling textured Embossing Folder
I actually debossed it (the dots are inwards)
I then adhered onto another layer of Basic Black

 I had stamped the lovely flower from the Birthday Blooms stampset onto Shimmery White cardstock using the Basic Black Archival stampin' pad.
I then watercoloured it in using the Aqua Painters
(Make sure it is dry before you add the next layer of colour)
I then fussy cut the flower out and adhered over the panels.
The words Just because come from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and were stamped using the Black Archival ink onto the Pink Pirouette cardstock with a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim attached underneath.
I do like that bit of lace peeking out.....

This card will be in the mail tommorrow 
to my niece, Cassandra whose birthday it is today.
Happy happy birthday
