JAI #113 - Just Add Inspiration

This week at Just Add Ink, our challenge is to create something using this very pretty photo that Jodene found




And this is what I came up with.


Now, I must admit, I made my card based on a memory of a conversation we DT girls had regarding the colours in this photo. For some reason, my memory thought the colours were more Peach/Apricot, but in hindsight (and when I looked at the picture), it's probably more of a coral. Oops.  I was going to redo it using Calypso Coral instead of the Peach Parfait that I used but I got sidetracked tonight playing some new Wii games I picked up today from Dick Smith's closing down sale - got to love a bargain!

Originally this was going to be a kind of 1 layer card - I had masked off where the sentiment is but when I removed the mask - copy paper that I had adhered with my beloved Dotto, the Dotto ripped the top of my cardstock, so I had to make a 'panel' for the sentiment.  I'm not really sorry about that because I changed my mind on where I wanted to place the sentiment anyway :)
 
Well, that's it from me, be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with - lots of beautiful projects for your viewing pleasure.
 
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend.  Hopefully the weather will actually be as nice as predicted.

There are no mistakes, only creative opportunities! I love your card, I think it looks perfect the way it is.

You do simple and striking so well Jo. Your dotto mishap certainly worked out well as the sentiment looks great overlaid on the pattern.

A vibrant card, and the c&S sentiment compliments it perfectly.
