Inky Dinky

What is it with ink?!?!?  I already have almost all of the Stampin' Up ink pads (with corresponding reinkers, mind you)... and a few of the Ranger Distress and ColorBok ink pads.  And guess what I bought yesterday during a visit at Joann's???

Well, it was on clearance.  But still.  What the heck?!??!

So to make me feel better, I made sure to play with it last night before going to bed.  I used it to make a background for my latest card:

And to go with my background, I colored the big words of my sentiment with matching Copic markers.  See the dots below the ribbon?  They were actually punched with Crop-A-Dile.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau, leftovers
image/sentiment:  unknown (RAKed)
ink:  Martha Stewart, Copic
tools:  Spellbinders, Stampin' Up ticket corner punch, Crop-A-Dile
embellishments:  ribbon, brad
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

Have a great week everyone...  'Til next blog!
