A Sketch for JAI 70 ... Because I Care

This week I have designed a round sketch for our 70th Challenge at Just Add Ink.

If you follow my blog you'll know that I went through a 'scallop circle easel card phase' and so this round sketch is probably highly influenced by that 'era'. Now that I have re-visited my past and created yet another one of these little beauties, I wonder why I ever bother to make the occasional ordinary rectangular card! ;) ... enough said - I LOVE round cards!

I decided to ink up, for the very first time, my Hostess L1 stamp set called, Because I Care and have a go at making a Vintage inspired creation.

Gorgeous Bronwyn. I really love the way you've coloured your hydrangea and it looks so great against that newsprint paper. You are really tempting me to buy that circle scallop die and now your tempting me with the lace too :)
