Just Add Ink, Off the Wall & Crafty Chicks

I've made a card for 3 different challenges today, including two challenges I've never entered before.   I'm using Off the Wall Craftiness' inspiration coloursJust Add Ink's sketch and a recipe from 4 Crafty Chicks.

4 Crafty Chicks
1. Ribbon
2. Brads
3. Pattern Papers.

Card Blank: Handy Hippo; PP: Kaisercraft Offshore; Stamp: Hero Arts; Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, ColourBox Cyan, Palette Orangerie;  Other: American Crafts brads, PTI die, Copic (YR68), misc ribbon, Glossy Accents
I love this patterned paper from Kaisercraft - called Offshore.  I've used it on a few different cards now and I feel like the papers are so bright and fun that they don't need much embellishing.  I got to break in my new banner die from PTI and I coloured 2 white brads with an orange Copic.  (Those Copics are so darn handy!)  I seem to be using that HA sentiment stamp a lot recently.  I guess it's my attempt at warding off all the cold, gloomy days we've had lately!

Your card is very cute! I love the pattern papers that you used and that your colors are so bright. It sure took my mind off of winter and started looking forward to spring. You rocked the sketch in my opinion. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring card with us at 4 Crafty Chicks. Hope we see you next week too! Hugs.

Wow, way to go on combining three challenges! Your card is fantastic! I love the little rays on the circle and the paper. The colours work wonderfully together!
