Think INK Artful INKables!

It's Saturday so you know what that means, it's time for another Artful INKables post! For my creation today I am sharing with you my card for the current Think INK Challenge! Our current Think INK Challenge is being issued by Tanya Johnson and the challenge is to make a non-standard card AND you must use the color purple! I have only made a few easel cards and decided that I would give another one a short, I used to be so intimidated by them because it looked all complicated, but they really are super simple!

For my card today I decided to ink up the set Spot On summer! I picked the flower image and used these beautiful Mulberry Flowers I ordered a while ago and I paired them with this stunning lace trim that fellow AI DT member and friend Cheryl Walker sent to me earlier this month. Cheryl always uses these amazing lace trims and her floral work always looks superb so I wanted to give it a try for my self today! I really don't use that much purple when I create, but since we were asked to use purple in some way I went all for it and accented the shade with some green as well to match the floral stems! Then I thought the corners needed something so I pulled out these great self adhesive jewels I received as part of an early birthday present from my Mama Ho (lol), Rae Anne Springer! Thank you both so much ladies! See how spoiled I am sometimes!

There is still plenty of time to join in on the Think INK Challenge, so be sure to hop on over to the Artful INKables Blog and join in on all the fun! Well I do hope you enjoyed my card for today, I had a lot of fun with this one! Have a fabulous day all!
