INKspired Blog Hop #INK012

Way to Go! - You Did It!

The past two weeks have just flown by and it's time for another INKspired Blog Hop!  If you have just come from Kabrina's blog you're in the right spot.

This time, my card is for my ULTRA-AMAZING hubby, Jeremy, whose laser focus on building our Leadership training business has taken it from scratch to success. 

It is truly amazing what happens when you have focus, determination and commitment to succeed in an area you are passionate about - one that really lights your inner fire! 

Please check out our website Rapport Leadership if you are interested in building your own leadership skills or developing them in others around you.

This round's sketch was easy to work with. Thanks Teneale :)

It was just the colour scheme that had me scratching my head.

It's always more difficult for me to come up with masculine colour schemes, but I think this one a goer!  Two of my faves Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango combined with neutral Basic Gray.

Here's my card ...

Next stop on the blog hop is Louise, who is herself a great leader. She always leads by example and with great enthusiasm and warmth.  I just love being part of her Stampin' Up! team.

Thanks for hopping by, see you again soon.

Hello! If you have just hopped here from Kabrina, you are in the right spot :) Welcome to another INKspired Blog Hop and thanks for stopping by.

I hope you're enjoying everyone's offerings for the sketch which is pictured below ...

It's a great sketch that uses one of my favourites, the Label Collection framelits.

I originally thought I would do an ocean scene, as if looking out of a porthole, but you know when you just can't seem to make a card look like you have imagined it - well I was having one of those days ... so I reverted to a floral theme.

And my Regarding Dahlias stamp set was just calling out to me, "Use me, use me!!" So I did :)

Here's my offering for this sketch ...

I really love the Regarding Dahlias stamp set and I think it pairs beautifully with the feathery striped paper in Basic Gray from the Confetti Celebration DSP set.  Mix in some Soft Sky ink and card stock and you've got yourself a cool colour scheme that's feminine and elegant, don't you think?

I added the expressly elegant Whisper White Organza Ribbon for another touch of class, some Soft Sky candy dots to balance it all out and voila, the card was ready for gifting to someone special.

I decided to omit a sentiment on this occasion as I felt the card was beautifully balanced as is. Maybe you don't agree ... I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a comment.

Next stop on the blog hop is the super talented and lovely Louise. I can't wait to see what she has done with this sketch!

Bye for now, hope to see you again next fortnight.
