Stampin’ Up! “Beautiful Day” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a color challenge.  Today’s colors were tough for me because this is not my favorite color pallet.  But, this is why it is called, “a challenge”.    I put my thinking cap on and got to work in my craft space trying to decided how to use these colors.  My inspiration came from the “Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper Pack”.  It got me going and then inspiration hit, the new “Beautiful Day” butterfly all painted up to match.  Enjoy the hop today and let me know what you think.
