Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Basket Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we had a sketch challenge so I decided to ink up the Blossoming Basket stamp set.  I earned this set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration.  I not only recieved the beautiful stamp set but the gorgeous basket weave embossing folder was included.  Wow!  what fun it was stamping and coloring with this beautiful set and all for FREE.
