Wow! We have just finished our first month of challenges at Inkspirational and it has been a blast seeing everyone’s creations! Thank you to each one who has joined us, and if you have not had a chance to play in our challenges yet, please pop over and let us see your talents!

Since this is the first week in February, we have a Color Challenge – Kraft, semi-navy and plum -  for you and here is my card.

Our sponsor this month is Eclectic Anthology and they have gorgeous antique and vintage digital images. I chose this beautiful image and added the Thank You sentiment using my computer. I edged the sentiment and panel in Liquid Pearls. It is finished off with small flowers and a tiny butterfly. Beneath the sentiment is a Spellbinders and a couple of Memory Box flourishes.  The blue panel is dry embossed and layered over Kraft and the Kraft is surrounded with Liquid Pearls.



Eclectic Anthology is a wonderful source for antique and vintage digital graphics, and if you play in all four of our challenges this month, you will have a chance to win! We have a super duper fabulous prize to give away to one lucky participant this month! The monthly winner for February will receive a $30 gift certificate for Eclectic Anthology’s digital store.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I look forward to seeing your creation this week at Inkspirational!

Another amazing creation, Ellen! LOVE your use of the freebie frame--the swirls are great, too! How do you get your liquid pearls to look so good?! I usually have to scrape most of mine off and try over and over to get them looking nice like that! ;D Fabulous, friend! :)

Very nice Ellen. I didn't pay much attention to the frames but will be going back for another look now as you have inspired me. I love the extra elements in the die cuts you have used within your card and those liquid pearls that I've seen around recently. Might just have to get me some of that.

Gorgeous Ellen, wow you took those colours and ran away with creativity. Love the flourishes, the gilded frame, the flowers and the fab design.

Hi Ellen
Beautiful layering on this card; lots of great texture. The colour combo really suits your elegant card.

Oh my word Ellen, what a beautiful card, so feminine with lots of pretty details without being girly! Grown up and sophisticated and I love the vintage vibe too!
