Create with Connie and Mary #155 and Just Add Ink #72


ETA - Whoo-hoo! This card was chosen as a Top 3 pick over at

While blog surfing the other day, I came across a post on Nance's blog saying that she had been invited to join the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday design team. Congratulations Nance! And of course, being the challenge junkie that I am, I just had to play along with this weeks sketch too :) Since the card that I entered the other day for the Just Add Ink challenge didn't have a lot of colouring, I thought I'd do some more colouring on this one and enter it over there as well.

Here's the sketch -

And my card -

I wasn't too sure about this card at first but after four attempts at the layout, it's kind of growing on me. I'd love to hear what you think about it. You can be honest :)







I'll be back with a supplies list later.
