Celebrate in Style!

Yesterday was a very 'inky' Saturday for me. I spent the afternoon crafting away. And today I am here to share one of my cards. A very CAS design but I have to say I do love how it turned out.
I wanted to do a card for the 'black, white and a splash of blue' challenge over on The Play Date Cafe.  I loved the blue used in their inspiration picture below and wanted to see if I could get something close to this-my memento 'bahama blue' ink works pretty, see what you think??

I will also enter this into the Ruby's Rainbow's 'black, white and one other colour' challenge.

I have used PTI's linen impression plate but my photo doesn't seem to show this. I used this sentiment as I wanted it to reflect the elegant feel of the card.
I can see this being a nice and easy card to replicate for other occasions when you need to make a card at the last minute.
The stamps are all from PTI's 'big and bold wishes'

Not sure today will be so 'inky' as hubby is contaminating our crafting space with work.....he has a deadline and has to work at home and unfortunately has to do this in our little creative space......the work vibes give me 'crafter's block'!!

Guess I will go to my allotment and see if my beets are ready to harvest!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
