JAI sketch challenge

Card: island indigo, pool party, calypso coral, whisper white
Ink: calypso coral
Stamp set: bliss, pocket sillouttes
Other: linen thread, perfect polka dots embossing folder, beautiful wings embosslit, sweet buttons embosslit, big shot, scallop trim border punch, scallop ciricle punch, sponge

Here is my take on this weeks JAI Challenge - a sketch. Follow the link to see what the amazing design team dreamed up this week! I found it quite hard to bring this card together by only using the materials and tools I have from Stampin' Up! but it proves it can be done...after all, I am creative!

Loving the new In Colours - these are my favourite! The island indigo and calypso coral work so well together. I sponged the whisper white and the scallop circle punch with calypso coral to highlight the edges and to give a bit of a shabby look. I used a button from the sweet button embosslit (gotta love this cute embosslit when you don't have buttons!) and wound linen thread around the middle of the biggest butterfly for some detail and texture.


  1. Cute card Anna. I like your colour combination and the indigo butterflies are gorgeous. Glad you could play along with us at JAI this week.

  2. Look at you! That is so creative to use only whats in your stash and not be tempted to use "contraband"! Love your wee card Anna. The butterfly body is very clever ♥

  3. I like how you have put the new In Colors together. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week.
