Stampin’ Up! Band Together Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a sketch challenge.  Inking up the Band Together stamp set was a perfect choice of the sketch.  The Detailed Bands Dies finished off the card beautifully.
Change up the colors and dies and you have a completely different card (oh, maybe for another blog p0st on Monday?)  Thank you Sharon Burkett for the inspiration for this card.
