Inkspirational-Our First Challenge!

Happy New Year Crafting chums!

Why not start the new year with a fresh and new weekly challenge! Its week one and that means we, at Inkspirational,  have a funky, cool colour challenge for you. Here, take a peek...

And as it is our first week every person that enters will be given a very special blog button! Plus, this month we are being sponsored by A Day For Daisies digi store, who are giving our monthly winner a $12 gift card! 

Check out our site Inkspirational for the challenge rules and how to win.

My card for our first challenge is a thank you card-we all need a few of them at this time of year!

And the inside of the card:

The sentiment is from PTI and the little present stamp is the Merry-Kiss-mas Casual Friday stamp.
I added a few green promarker dots and some gems to the pressies for a bit more interest. To give the card some texture I used my linen impression plate. Very CAS and easy to repeat for a set of notelets!

Check out the great creations from out DT here
We are super excited to see what these colours inspire you to make!
Also we are running a 'Follower Giveaway', lots of fab prizes and all you need to do is to start following us-check the details here.

And once more a very Happy New Year!!

  5. Hi Sandie - you're right, this thank you card is so perfect for now! While it's a CAS card you've not skimped on the lovely details - the little gems on the parcels, the knotted twine - and what a great inside!

  6. Wonderful card Sandie! I love the clean look and subtle use of the colors. Cheers to the first Inkspirational challenge!
