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.
