Stampin’ Up! More “Petal Palette” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a color challenge using Pool Party, Garden Green and Soft Suede.  I already used this color combo last week when I created with the Tutti Frutti DSP, so this week I had to think of solid paper to inspire me because I did not have any other DSP with those colors.  Then an idea popped into my head…make your own DSP with the Petal Passion DSP paper.  What fun I had coloring in my flowers to match perfectly with the colors from the challenge!!!

    The vellum adds such a softness to the card. Your bird is perfectly colored. This is becoming my favorite stamp set and you have helped it get there!
