Inkspired Blog Hop 38

Hello and welcome to Inkspired Blog Hop 38. You may have come from Renee who I know will have made a fabulous card.

This is the sketch that Teneale provided us with:

I had an idea for this sketch, however I left it too late to order my supplies so I had to come up with something else. I eventually came up with this:

I was puzzling over which colours to use and then I noticed how nice the grey was on our new chairs. So I decided on a combination of Smoky Slate and Pool Party. The stamped flower is from the Flourishing Phrases set and I stamped several times (in Pool Party) before re-inking. 

I die cut the flower from the Flourish Thinlits in Smoky Slate and then went over it with Wink of Stellar to brighten it up. The ribbon is 1/8 inch ribbon in Silver. 

I knew that it needed a sentiment and decided to use the Happy Birthday stamp from the Confetti Celebrations set. I then used a new favourite in the Classic Label Punch to make it stand out.
I hope you like it!

Our next artist is the amazing Maree. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us.

Bye for now!


  1. Love your card Allison and the colour combination. Pool Party is one of my favourites.
