Just Add Ink to CR84FN!

A short post with a card for two challenges:  CR84FN and Just Add Ink.  I have wanted to participate in a Just Add Ink challenge for months now after I discovered it on my ramblings around the bloggo-sphere, but have never been able to find the time.  I was bound and determined that I would get one of their challenges in before the time for entering was up!  The JAI challenge is a sketch challenge and I thought the layout would make it easier for me to complete my CR84FN card.  On Sunday night I actually started the card, but well... it just wasn't working for me at the time so I gave up.  I thought I would get back to the card yesterday, but I actually ended up using part of the original card for another card that thankfully came together rather quickly. 



So, after a  bit more thought and a slight change in the materials used I was finally able to get my card done and with only a few hours to spare before time is up on the current JAI challenge!  Whew... nothing like a deadline to get your mojo kick started!  Anywho... the patterned paper is from the DCWV mat stack called Lemon Flower... love that paper.  The stamps are from My Favorite Things.   

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; PP:  DCWV Lemon Flower; Ink:  SU! Tempting Turquoise, PTI True Black; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Die:  My Favorite Things
