This week at Just Add Ink, we have a great sketch that Mae has developed:

I've broken out my new Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper for my Design Team sample this week.  This paper is bright, and fun, and has loads of polka dots - what's not to love?!

I have taken a couple of liberties with the sketch, but hope you can still see the inspiration I drew from Mae's design.   The patterned paper (Calypso Coral polka dotted layer) has been used in place of the vertical panel to the left of the sketch, because I liked that there were flowers reaching up from the bottom of the panel.  I've also altered the scale of the overlapping panel, and placement of my butterfly (just because I didn't want the embellishment to get lost amongst all the dots!).
