Stampin’ Up! Bunch of Blossoms Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Happy Thursday to you all.  Today we had a color challenge using Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral.  I was inspired by the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series paper which helped me in my design.  I did end up using Tangerine Tango instead of Calypso  Coral because I liked it best with my DSP but this could easily be switched if you prefer Calypso Coral better.

Here is the color challenge:

    The flowers are gorgeous but I think it’s your embellishments and extras that add the wow factor. I never know when to add splatters and the thin gold thread but you sure do! Thanks for sharing!
