An Inkspirational Card!

My good friend Mynnette has just set up a fab new 'Inkspirational' challenge blog, you can find it - HERE.
The first challenge is to use these colours

And here is my card

I have used some Stampin' Up Framelit Dies to create an easel card. Using the largest die to make the card base this will fit very comfortably into a 5" x 5" envelope.
There are 6 dies in the set and I had great fun cutting loads to mat and layer. Basic Black and Very Vanilla were used and then I stamped some windmills from the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set. I used Melon Mambo and Certain Celery inks along with Basic Black for my sticks and sentiment.
Here's what it looks like flat

I added some Basic Rhinestones to the centres of the windmills and the windmills themselves have been raised on Dimensionals.

Stamps: Sweets for the Sweet
Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Certain Celery
Card Stock: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Framelits - Windows Frames Collection, Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones
(Items above highlighted in red are Stampin' Up products and are all available in the current Annual Catalogue. I would be very happy to order any Stampin' Up product for you at any time and have it delivered direct to you door - details are at the top of the page).

Thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx
