Just Add A Flower

While I have been playing around with my latest new stamp set, I came across the latest Just Add Ink challenge (JAI 66 - Just Add A Flower).  My hydrangeas fit this challenge beautifully.  :-)

I like these latest two cards.  I used blender pens instead of watercolouring this time.  I made a couple of mistakes, which I had to cover up.  One cover up resulted in a nicer card, the other not so successful!

Here is my challenge entry:

Gee, it's hard to photograph white on these grey days we've been having lately!  I probably should have chosen a different colour background. That pink doesn't work!  The little flowers with the diamantes are popped up slightly, also.

This card uses (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps - Because I Care
Paper - Whisper White, Washington Apple DSP
Ink - Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Ribbon - Daffodil Delight taffeta

My other card for today is similar, because I was working on a theme.  Here it is:

And a close up to give you some idea of the levels:

This card uses:

Stamps - Because I Care
Paper - Whisper White, Tea Party DSP
Ink - Basic Black, Almost Amethyst
Ribbon - Pretty in Pink grosgrain

I hope you like these latest efforts. Thanks for coming by to take a look.

Oooooh.... LOVE the first card! I think I will CASE it! Isn't this hydrangea such a pretty flower? Thanks for visiting and leaving me such a nice comment on my blog, too! :)

Your hydrangea's all look lovely - classic and very attractive cards! The yellow ribbon on your challenge card works really well too.
Thanks for playing at JAI.

Gotta love the bling but I really like the colour combinations of both cards. You have a very good eye for that.

Such an effective card! I'm favouring the first one - I too am a fan of the bling! Lovely!
