Inkspirations Challenge 26!

Good afternoon stampin' friends! I have some exciting news! Makeesha has asked me to be her guest designer for the month of June over at Inkspirations! To say I am honoured is an understatement, and to say I perspired just a little when trying to make an acceptable card, is an outright lie, hehe. But we got there, and this is only my second attempt!

The colours we were challenged to use, and again 'challenged' is an understatement, are from this awesome palette. I say I was particularly challenged, as I just didn't know what to do with the basic gray! But, they do go very nicely together, and I'm somewhat pleased with the result :)

Recipe:
Stamps - Scribble This, Always, French Script (retired)
Cardstock - Kraft, whisper white, real red.
Ink - Versamark, real red, basic gray, craft whisper white.
Tools & Embellishments - scallop punch, basic gray taffeta ribbon.
All materials Stampin' Up!
For some more wonderful Inkspirations Inspiration, pop the kettle on and mosey over to check out the cards by the rest of the amazingly talented Design Team!
and of course Makeesha!
I hope you likey!

OMG!! So simple but so elegant. I know you used scribble this for the scroll work but it just looks like you have hand drawn them. Looks fantastic. Love the flower ....sooo vibrant!

Hi Lee,

Welcome to the team for June, I forgot about it when I posted my card so I will fix that up on my blog.

I LOVE your card, it is just so elegant and I do love elegant. You are really very talented and I was so happy to get one of your swaps from Sarah Jane at Convention.

Have a nice weekend.

Wow Lee, congratulations on being a guest designer for June. And what a fabulous start to the month you have made with this beauty. It is just gorgeous, so elegant. I love the background, the way you've combined the script stamp with the scribble is so very clever. Love the extra touches of the ribbon and flower. This is really special.

Have a wonderful day.
