This week at Just Add Ink, Mae has set a sketch challenge:

I've taken a few liberties with the sketch, flipping it on its side, moving the rectangular panels, and not placing elements where the two 'tabs' in the picture are.
I just love the gorgeous, small-scale, patterns in Stampin' Up!'s Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack.  The papers are perfect for card-making, and incorporate current In Colors.  I couldn't get a good photo of my card in my usual inside spot (for some reason, the Summer Starfruit was throwing yellow light all over the card!), so please excuse the background distractions!
Stamps: My Friend
Card: Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit
DSP: Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack
Ink: Midnight Muse and Crumb Cake stampin' pads
Other: In Color Dahlias, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse stitched satin ribbon, Fancy Fan embossing folder, glue dots, sponge dauber
The rest of the Design Team at Just Add Ink have come up with some gorgeous samples using this sketch.   Make sure you check them out; we hope you'll also play along with us!


  1. A lovely card Christine. I love that flowery DSP and those In Color Dahlias are so cute. Great way to show how the sketch can be interpreted.

  2. Gorgeous, Christine. Just love those papers and the framed embossed panels.

  3. This is such a pretty card with a pretty colour combo Christine! Love how you flipped the sketch and moved bits - it really works!

  4. This has such a lovely spring feel about it Christine! Love the scattered dahlias - just the perfect happy touch :) xxx

  5. I really like the different patterns and textures you have used on this sweet card!

  6. How bright and breezy is that? Lovely. And you are onto another challenge - cant keep up with all you do.

  7. I do love the soft cottage look this DSP gives and the added texture is a lovely addition. Great idea to flip the sketch as well! xxx
