Just in Time

Just in time for Just Add Ink Challenge #27.
Here is this Week's Sketch, and here is my interpretation.
I have used Pink Flamingo DSP, Soft Suede and Real Red Cardstock.
The word Cherish is from Warm Words Stamp Set, which I have embossed.
I applied Crystal effects to the squares of DSP, when it was dry I bent them to it cracked glass effect.

Cased Michelle Zindorf

Here's a card that I cased from Michelle Zindorf.
Michelle does the most amazing brayered and sponged cards and she is very generous and has tutorials for her cards. Her blog is a must visit blog.
This is the inside of the card.
I have used Asian Artistry Stamp Set (Level 2 hostess set). If you would like to earn this Stamp Set contact me to book a workshop.
I have used Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Always Artichoke Ink. 
In my last order I bought myself the White Gel Pen, I have owned white gel pens in the pass and have never been impressed with there performance. SU White Gel Pen is great I'm so impressed I know I will use it lots.
