JAI #223: Just Add A Sketch


It's nearly the end of the school holidays here.  One weekend to go!  We are having a group of giggly girls for a sleep over tonight for Ada's birthday.  She turned 9 a week ago, but we delayed her party until the end of the holidays.  I mention her birthday because the card I made for the new Just Add Ink challenge was her birthday card.

This week it's s sketch designed by yours truly.  I love designing sketches, but I love seeing what people do with them even more!

Here's the card I made for her.  I turned the sketch into an easel card and stamped it using the new Flower Patch Photopolymer stamp set.

I really love this set and the endless possibilities for combining the images and colours.  Ada's favourite colour is blue, so I stuck with blues for her card.

All little girls love some bling, so the 9 was the perfect way to add it to her card.

A bit more bling on the base to keep the card propped open!

I'm pleased to say that she loved the card!

I hope you find time to play along with my sketch at Just Add Ink this week.

Bye for now,



  1. Easel cards always look so special but I think the addition of the sparkly number really makes this card pop!

  2. It's the perfect not so little girls card Tina. Beautiful in blues and that bit of bling adds such wondeful sparkle :) xxx

  3. What a great sketch and an even greater card. It truly is "Beyou{tiful}. TFS.

  4. A shaped card and a pop-up card - Perfect idea! Love it. I especially love the blues and the sparkly '9' - a very pretty card card for a young lady! Louise xo
