Coral, Cocoa, Blush, & Kraft Oh MY!!! - JAI10

I received a text message today from my number 1 blog fan (**HI SCOTT**) telling me he was less than happy with my lack of blogging. So this blog post is for you Scott x x

I am definitely running behind with my entry into this week's JUST-ADD-INK Challenge. It has taken me days to recover from the wedding of the decade on Friday (it was very beautiful, lots of fun AND they loved their card!!!). I also feel that I have my finger in a few too many pies this week with lots of different orders and projects on the go- I will have to pull some organisational skills out of the bag :o).

I was in love with this week's colour combo challenge the minute that I saw it but I did struggle for a while with the idea of how I was going to put the colours together. I decided to borrow my Mum's Pocket Silhouettes set (**Thanks Mum**) and make a very pretty, feminine Mother's Day card for one of my orders (told you I was getting organised!!!).

Here is my card:


Stamp Sets: Pocket Silhouettes; Vintage Labels
Card/Paper: Kraft; Close to Cocoa; Blush Blossom; Cameo Coral; Bella Bleu DSP; Candy Lane DSP
Ink: Cameo Coral
Other: Kraft Taffeta ribbon; Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack; Word Window Punch; Corner Rounder Pundh; Cricut Machine (**Thanks again Mum**); Rub-ons (Non-SU)

Yay - I can tick some more things off my list - Challenge done - TICK; Happy with card - TICK; Posted on blog - TICK; Given Scott something to see when he checks my blog at work tomorrow - TICK - hahahaha.

Thanks for taking time to have a look x x x
