INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 50 - WOW!

Well hello and welcome to our INKspired blog hop and it is number 50! You may have popped across from the delightful Allison
and I can't wait to see what she has made..
Teneale Williams gives us a sketch that we use each fortnight and below is the one we are working with tonight.
I had a few card ideas going through my head .....
I have a friend's birthday coming up this week so 
decided a birthday card was in order.
I chose the lovely Flirty Flamingo for the base card and sponged Versamark around the edge. I then used a piece of Flirty Flamingo from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.
I cut a piece of Whisper White smaller than the DSP
and used the large flower from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies

The words were from the Dragonfly Dreams stampset
I then did some gentle sponging over the whisper white using Flirty Flamingo ink.

Love the beautiful DSP coming up from under the flower.

Thank you for stopping by 
tonight and
now it is onto the gorgeous Barbara
and I always love what she makes 

Bye for now.
