Just Add Ink #107 - Just Add Nikki!!!

This week's challenge at JAI is one I just couldn't miss out on, CASEing the beautiful work of Design Team member, Nikki Spencer.  The very first piece of Nikki's work I came across blew me away, with her striking colour combo, & I've been a stalker ever since, lol!

For my entry, I've used the colours from that very first "introduction" & a very beautiful Christmas card of Nikki's, (which I was very excited to receive).  Here's my card:-

Helen, you have created such a beautiful, serene, scene; the colours you were inspired by Nikki to use are GORGEOUS together. Love your CASE (it was a tall order this week, wasn't it?!).

This is simply stunning Helen. Love the colour combo. You've achieved a beautifully warm, yet serene scene...quite an achievement as serene usually equates to cooler colour palettes...brilliant work as always :)
Hugs xx
