Ink What you Haven't Used?!

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge was to ink what you haven't used - now I know I have new stamps that haven't been inked but I decided to flip through my bindah's to see if there were others...

Daisy Balloon is one that I'm 99% sure I haven't inked so today was a perfect day to do so!  I used Jen's sketch for February (SFYTT) and stamped the image onto bella's bestest paper twice.  I paper pieced the flower on the balloon using my ds paper - bg Green at heart- and paper pieced the balloon to the basket.  The ds is stitched onto chocolate chip cs.  This is one of my brighter cards; I wasn't sure when I was putting it together but I like the brightness!

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes creations and what the sistah's inked up - leave Em a comment & you could win bella bucks!!

Next week we have a colour challenge - here's a picture for inspiration!!  We are going with March's birthstone Aquamarine - look at all the different shades!!  Email your cards to Em by Thursday to be included

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day
