Inkspirational Challenge #27

Happy Saturday to all,

It is the colour challenge this week at Inkspirational. I just loved this colour combo:

3 shades of purple for me to play with, what joy!!

And here is my card:

I have used 2 different patterned papers here in the lighter shades of purple......yep you heard right, I used patterned paper!! And two, wow, nearly a first for me!
The sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps, I just masked off half the sentiment and inked in the different colours. I have added some sparkle to the stars using gelly pens. I quite like this layout and think you could repeat this using a Xmas sentiment for a quick and easy Holiday card.

The rest of the Inkspirational DT posted their projects on Wednesday using these colours. Pop over to the blog here to see these fabulous creations and prepared to be inspired! You have until Tuesday 6pm CST to play along. Our monthly winner in July will get a $12 gift card or 3 digis from our super sponsor A Day for Daises.

Have fun getting inky!!
