Faux and Flourishes!

Good morning all! Today I get to share with you the card I created for the new Inky Impressions Challenge! This week Lisa is our challenge host at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog, and her challenge to all of you and the Inky Inkettes is to create with Faux and Flourishes!

Today the Inky Impressions Design Team will be sharing our creations for the current Inky Impressions Challenge! For my card today I didn't know where to start with this one since I don't have many "Flourishes", but the hair on this image Nickie's Birdie I thought was like Flourishes the way it is blowing in the wind. For my "Faux" element I used my Die-Namics to create some flowers around the main image. I also decided to play along with this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch (the square version). I love all the layers and I thought that the layout worked well with the current Inky Impressions Challenge! I used this stunning paper from The Girl's Paperie - Kitch, I really like the soft colors that this paper line uses and I pulled out the blues and greens from this sheet. I also popped up the flowers from the main image and added pearls to the center of each flower. To tie it all in I used a matching green ribbon to create a bow over the side panel and some pearls to finish off the sketch.

I hope you like my take on the current Inky Impressions Challenge, be sure to join in on all the fun over at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Inklettes have created, they are sure to impress! I can’t wait to see what you create! Have a wonderful day all!
