April Flower Hop - Artful INKables


Welcome to the Artful INKables blog hop!
We are celebrating the fabulous month of April with some amazing April flowers  the Artful INKables way!

If you haven’t come here from Marti’s Blog, be sure to hop on over to the Artful INKables Blog, you don’t want to miss anything for today’s hop!


For today's card I used AI's In My Garden set. This adorable set was released last month and has cute flower/garden themed images and sentiments. I used the latest Sketches 4 You sketch (Laura's Sketch #50) for the layout.


I threaded some sheer purple ribbon through the off-white lace, then added a small bow beneath the sentiment. For some 'bling' I used my glitter pen on the colored flowers and gems on the sentiment strip.
