Finally, an Inkspirations challenge!

Hi Guys,

A very quick post. I needed to make a card for a beautiful soon-to-be 4 year old and thought the latest Inkspirations sketch would be fun to use. It looks scary at first but seeing the DT's efforts helped a lot.

Here's the sketch:

And my card:

I decided to use the Playdate DSP as it has such cute images. I used my 13/4" punch for the squares and added them to a Bashful Blue background, and then onto Real Red.  The cupcake is from 'Party Hearty' and the sentiment from 'Party this Way'. The scallop is from the large scallop punch that I was fortunate enough to purchase before it was withdrawn.

I hope Maija likes it. I am a bit concerned that it is more suited to an older girl. Since I made this I have seen Louise Layton's gorgeous effort which is sooo cute for a 4 y.o.

Must run,
Fi x

This is a really fun card. The DSP really suits the layout you used. I also love the large scallop.
