Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  It is Thursday and that means another fun hop for you to see.  Today our team had a color challenge using Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green.  I was excited to use my new Good Tidings stamp set that just arrived this week.  I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and used this design as a jumping off point to create my card.  Thank you Kim for giving me a jumping off point to create my card for the hop today.
