Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well, Mr Brown came over the weekend and delivered a box full of goodies from the new catalog, Yippee!  Since I had some new things to stamp with and our challenge this week was all about some new colors, I decided to use the new Tropical Escape Suite today.  Our color challenge was Granny Apple Green, Blushing Bride and Shaded Spruce.

    I love your card and the way you do your blog. It’s so easy to read how to make the card. It really IS amazing how we all did something different with the same colors.
