Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's samples at Just Add Ink.  We would love to see what you create, using this colour combo.


  1. Fab card, Christine! You've used the colours so well. I really, really love that filmstrip die - it highlights the image so well.

  2. Grown up and girlie at the same time - you always ace teen cards Christine! Those stars add such a fun touch too! xxx

  3. Such a great balance of the colours Christine, love the bold red details and fun layout...a perfect teen card indeed! xxx

  4. Great job with the color combo, love the film framelit highlighting the candles! The embossing really adds a nice girly touch.

  5. You utilised these colours to their full potential! No hiding behind one more than the other. The result is awesome - love all the little elements you've put together and that 18 sure stands out perfectly - as it should. x

  6. Yep I agree - you totally nailed this challenge! Another fabulous card Christine!

  7. Gorgeous Christine. Nice to see that you haven't gone with traditionally girly colours for your niece, and yet it still looks so pretty with the scallop embossing, the softly speckled cardstock and the string bow. Love your work. xo
