This week at Just Add Ink, Mae has come up with another great sketch to challenge us!  Here it is (sorry about the blurriness - not quite sure what happened there):

I opted to make a little (10.5cm) square card, using Peach Parfait as a dominant colour.  I had a little office clip in orange, that was perfect for my colour scheme.  My Stampin' Up! Color Coach suggested I team Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red with Peach Parfait.

In spite of a near-disaster of the "white gel pen" kind, I managed to complete my card. (I'm sure most papercrafters have had many headaches with white gel pens ... just when I found one that has been reliable, it threatened to run out of ink as I was trying to create my faux stitching.  Crisis was averted, thankfully, but another one is going on my SU! order today!)

The Baja Breeze pocket is raised up using Stampin' Dimensionals, so the little insert can be pulled out:

Stamps: Best of Everything
Card: Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Baja Breeze
DSP: Peach Parfait Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Peach Parfait, Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze stampin' pads, Peach Parfait marker
Other: Word Window punch, Corner rounder punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Modern Label punch, Peach Parfait poly-stitched ribbon, mini glue dots, sponge daubers, Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool, white gel pen, stampin' dimensionals, Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, office clip (not SU!)

Please check out the rest of the Design Team's beautiful samples at Just Add Ink.  We hope to see you join in on our challenge.
