JAI 127 - Just Add Colour Challenge

This week at Just Add Ink we have a colour challenge, check it out

Well, that graphic is not the best, so we are working with Basic Black, Whisper White and a colour of your choice.  I've chosen Gold

I've used a new background set from The Craft's Meow, which I embossed with Gold EP.  I must admit, that although I made things harder for myself than I needed to by stamping in a clear ink on white paper (what was I thinking??), it was pretty easy to line up and I actually only stamped it 4 times.  The card was originally going to be landscape, but that wasn't really working so I flipped it.  Actually, this wasn't at all what my card was going to look like but I had a few 'technical difficulties' with my original idea so decided to cut my losses and move on.

Well, that's it from me, I'm scheduling this post after a day at home with a horrible head cold/flu thing and I need to go and lie down again.

Thanks for visiting - hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Oh, don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team have created.
