Just Add Ink

Hi all, mega late this evening, my mojo disappeared for the last few days but has slowly returned in bits (if that's possible) lol.  This week over at Just Add Ink the challenge is Just Add Kathy Tanner and wow her cards are amazing, I mean really really stunning, and I chose around 6 cards after going through all of the archives!!!  I was hoping to start the card last night but I spent around 2.5hrs on her blog lol, this means that I felt I was rushing tonight and I picked what I thought was the easiest card, but ended up trying to work how to emboss on the corner without making a mark which I gave up, then I tried 14 butterfly punch/dies and couldn't get 4 different size, then I decided to only do a 2 colour scheme which didn't work well and then to top it up I overloaded the poor card with so many butterfly's that I'm surprised it still stood up!!! lol.  I've decided to still enter as I'm hoping Kathy realises how fab her cards are, go and have a look but make sure you have plenty of time lol.

Thanks so much for your kind words Kezzy!

I absolutely love your colour combo for your butterflies, they are beautiful. Love the way you added your jewels too.

I'm glad you found a card of mine that you liked enough to case and thanks for joining us at JAI this week

Wow I love the colours you've chosen for your butterflies and I love the way you've put your card together. The finished result is worth the grief you went through to get there lol.

Thanks for joining us at JAI this week.

Love your take on Kathy's card, the butterflies are so bright and give a cheery feel to your card. I can understand how you took so long having fun browsing and getting inspiration from Kathy's blog...she is so talented. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week.
