Just Add Ink Challenge #129 - Happy Birthday Christine!!!!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of a lunch date with two very lovely ladies from the JAI Team, Christine Blain & Nikki Spencer (waving madly to you girls!)  ♥

It's Christine's birthday today (please make sure you go give her some birthday love!) so I thought it appropriate to create her card using the current Just Add Ink sketch:-

& here is the card:-

It's all SU except for the Tulip stamp, which is an old Hero Arts stamp (like about 15+ years old, lol!)  I've watercoloured the flowers with inks & an aquapainter.

ETA:  A big thank you to the lovely ladies at JAI, who awarded me with this:-

Card Components: (SU except as noted)
Cardstock:  Bravo Burgundy, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Watercolour Paper
Stamps:  Happiest Birthday Wishes, Creatively Yours, Tulips (by Hero Arts)
Inks:  Black Staz On, Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Lucky Limeade, River Rock
Other:  Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder, Linen Thread, 1" & 1.3/8" Circle Punches, Dimensionals

This gorgeous card is even more beautiful in real life! Thank you, my lovely friend, for the card, and the birthday shout-out on your blog! Great to have you play along with us at Just Add Ink this week, and for such a special occasion, hee hee :)

Hi Helen. Lovely work as always. I love your apple from the previous post. I must buy that petal cone die. My daughter is a teacher and I think she would love that card.
Hope everyone are well and happy. We have been extremely busy up here and nowI have been fighting but winning my battle with a sinus infection in the last two days.
Have a wonderful week and thanks for your fantastic inspiration.
Love Suzie xx
