Just Add Ink #418...."Colour Challenge"

It has been a while since I stamped and also since I posted here on my blog. I currently have little space in my craft room to create as it is half full of furniture from different rooms in the house while we wait for some carpet to be laid. It was meant to be laid last Friday but was delayed until next Wednesday! I can't wait for my house to get back in order so I can create more regularly and also, have a class or two here!

Anyway, on to the reason for this post is that I did find some time today to get "inky" and as often when I need inspiration to start I go to one of my favourite challenge sites....Just Add Ink! Love what the girls do to inspire us. Well this week they have a colour challenge for us and here are the beautiful colours....

I started with the Jar of Love stamp set on my desk trying to decide how to use that one for these beautiful colours. I was also thinking of incorporating any of designer series packs that might have these colours in them and that were possibly in the current Buy 3, Get 1 Free promotion that is on during July. However, I was late in ordering my DSP packs and so decided I had better make my own designer series paper panel for my card....which is what I did!

I think the colours go so beautifully together and I added a touch of neutral with Smoky Slate, I hope that is ok for the challenge. I was quite pleased how my card turned out.

While my card was on my desk and I was making the inside panel, something happened that nearly made me want to start again, however, I didn't and I am going to use it as a incentive to earn a pack of our beautiful pearlized doilies. Can you tell me what happened to my card?

And no, the boo boo is not hidden under my embelishments or greeting! The first correct guess, will receive this card in the post along with a pack of our pearlized doilies.

Thanks for hanging in there with me as I blog less frequently during renovations and of course the start of a busy tax season! I also find life is providing more ups and downs lately as my husband and I journey a path of unpredictability. Therefore, I encourage you all to become a Dementia Friend by clicking here!

Don't forget, if like me, you are lacking inspiration or need a starting point for your next project then head on over to the Just Add Ink blog page for inspiration and their Friday challenges!
