Who Would Have Thought?......

I have been a long time admirer of the incredibly talented Makeesha Byl & her beautiful work, her awesome Inkspirations Challenges & her amazing Design Team. Earlier this year I even started blogging, just to get the chance to play along in the Inkspirations Challenges.

So who would have thought that one day I would become a member of Keesh's Design Team??? Pinch me - I think I'm dreaming!!!

Thank you Keesh for such a wonderful opportunity - I hope I can inspire others as you have inspired me.

A big thank you also to Design Team members Renee, Cindy & Kirsty, as well as past members Sarah-Jane, Chantelle, Teneale & Karen for your inspiration & encouragement. A big shout out to my fellow "new girls" on the team - Brandi, Carrie, Ilina, Lee-Anne & Marisa - woohoo!

Keesh has lots planned, including a new Challenge only site here.

So here is my very first Design Team project, based on this week's Inkspirations Sketch #47:-

This card was inspired by one of Keesh's favourite colour combos of pink & orange.  I really like the fresh & zingy look of Peach Parfait & Regal Rose together, teamed with lots of white.

I have used two sizes of the "teardrop" stamps from the SU Playful Pieces Hostess Set.  Each petal has been rock 'n' rolled in the Peach & then the Rose inks & individually cut out & then layered together to create the bloom.  A pearl centre completes the flower.

Come & check out all the other DT member's creations & join in the fun!
