Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I wanted to ink up the Cottage Rose stamp set and use the Abigal Rose DSP as I had not had a chance to use it yet. Oh my, what a beautiful combination of products. I know I will use this set many times and make some great color combinations too.   Make sure you stop by all the members of our hop and see what this creative group is sharing today.
