Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our blog hop we have a color challenge of Smokey Slate, Whisper White and a color of our choice which for me was, Real Red.   I fudged a bit on the colors as I thought the Smokey Slate was Silver.  Since my card was done with silver, I just went with it.  You could easily change the card to Smokey Slate and it would still be beautiful  Enjoy our hop today.
