Just Add Ink Challenge 6

Another great challenge from the girls at JAI, this time a layout. See the full challenge here.  Please forgive the photography on this one. I normally get Matt to take all the photos, he is so much better at it than me, but this card is for our 10th Wedding Anniversay next month so I had to take the photo myself.

Organic Grace is my favourite hostess set from this years catalogue and this one is extra special as it was sent to me by my very first  Splitcoast Big Sister CJ.  I knew I wanted to add some ribbon (no card of mine is complete without it!), but wasnt sure where. I didnt want a big bow as the card is for my hubby, so I put it across the corners of the picture!

Project Recipe
Stamps: Organic Grace (hostess), jumbo outline alphabet and I (heart) Hearts (summer mini)
Cardstock: Elegant eggplant, old olive and whisper white
Ink: elegant eggplant and old olive
Accessories: Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon


  1. Love that elegant eggplent! What a gorgeous colour! A very striking card.

  2. Congratulations on 10 years of marriage. This card is, as the colour suggests, elegant. I'm sure your hubby will love it. I just love the dragonfly in this set.

  3. Love your colour combo - I went the same way with purples and greens! Great use of the Organic Grace stamp set and the ribbon placement is a fantastic idea! Congrats on your wedding anniversary!
