This ismy second post today! Scroll down for my Just Inklined card,
or hit home then scroll down!

Here I am with my DT card for the second challenge at
Our theme for the challenge this month is
I made this card for a very special lady who was celebrating a 
very special birthday last month!
Our very own lovely boss lady Nikki turned 40! 
(that's 40 exclamation mark, not 401 as it looks in my typeface!)
Whoop Whoop!
Luckily we share a favourite colour so it was easy peasy!

Our sponsor this month is the lovely Teri Sherman of

The team were all super excited to be working with Teri's fabulous images.

The image I have used is Steampunk Fairy
I think she's just absolutely gorgeous!
I've coloured her with a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
I've added some stickles to her wings for a bit of glitter!
My papers are Do Crafts & I've had them forever in my stash.
(I think I bought them when I attended one of Nikki's demos at a local craftshop!)
The cogs are die cut with Spellbinders Dies.
I  used my chalk inkpads to lightly distress,
The ribbons were chosen from my local fabric shop & the fabby little tiny
button brads were purchased at Southfield Stationers shop.
The font I have used is Ornatique & you can download it free here!
I can't wait to see what you create for this months challenge!
