Stampin’ Up! “Jar of Love” for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we all had a color challenge.  The colors we are working with are Marina Mist, Old Olive and White.  When I originally thought about these colors I was going to use a floral from the Sweet Soiree DSP and make a really frilly card.  Well,  I did use a piece of the paper from that pack ( a simple patterned paper) but changed gears and inked up an old favorite  from the Jar of Love stamp set.   I did stay true to the color challenge and ended up with a more subtle simple card, I hope you like it!  There is no fluffy bow on this card, I think that might be a first, LOL
