Inky Impressions Challenge

This will be my LAST post for today BUT ... it is my FIRST submission for the Inky Impressions Challenges. I met Nicole (Inky's Mama) online over a year ago when she was really just "getting started" on this adventure ... and WOW .. has she blossomed!!! You Go Girl!!! Then I was thrilled to meet her in person at the Adventures in Stamping held in Akron, OH in April, 2008. What enthusiasm and a wonderfully supportive husband too!! If you haven't seen her images, and you like to color ... please check it out HERE.

Now for my creation .... here are the details:
Stamps: Stamp Craft (sentiment), Inkadinkado (butterfly)
Papers: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, DCWV Glitter Sweet designer paper
Inks: Versafine black, pink pirouette, eggplant envy
Accessories: Free digi image offered by Nicole for this challenge, Spellbinder Nestabilities (label one), Target heart brad, Michael's satin ribbon, Darice sheer ribbon, SU watercolor pencils & blender pen, Archiver's tag, Embellish It butterfly charm, sponge
(Click on the image for a closer look.) The tag is designed to be used as a bookmark. I hope you enjoyed my creation. Please pop over and check out Nicole's store & challenge blog and if you do, please tell her I sent you! LOL ... no, I won't get anything special if you mention my name ... I just would like Nicole to know how much I support her efforts!! Thanks for stopping by!!
