Pocketful of Posies for Just Add Ink challenge

I interrupt the posting of the card I made for my A Klass Act challenge (as promised yesterday) to enter a card in this week's Just Add Ink challenge. It has been.....oh....I don't know....forever since I entered any challenges on the JAI website so I thought I would have a play this week.

The challenge this week was to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of the creations of  design team member, Delys Cram. I spent a good while last night scrolling through Delys' blog in order to choose something I would like to CASE. I can tell you it was hard to choose just one card and I actually have some of Delys' cards now filed away on my computer to go to for inspiration in the future.

Last month I was lucky enough to be a part of the Stampin' Up! 'Paper Party' when my good friend, Robyn, joined my team. The 'Paper Party' means that Robyn and I will now be able to choose and receive a pack of Designer series paper for the rest of this year for FREE- Yippppeeeee! (How great is this company I work for?). My first choice this month was the delightful 'Pocketful of Posies' paper. I have been dying to use it ever since it arrived on my doorstep yesterday. So using THIS card of Delys' as inspiration I created my card using this gorgeous paper:

The lighting is not so great in this photo- it is a gloomy old day in Perth today. Isn't that paper gorgeous though? The colours I have used to compliment the paper are Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze and there's just the teeniest bit of bling sneaking in there too.

Here is a little piccie of the original card by Delys too.

So I will be back later as promised with a cutesy bike card which I designed for my AKA challenge.
