Stampin’ Up! “Another Free As A Bird” Card For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today I we had a color challenge using Pool Party, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. I decided to ink up my Free As A Bird stamp set again for the hop.  I made two different cards and had a hard time choosing which one I liked best for our hop. (You can see the other one on my  Alternate Monday blog coming soon).  Enjoy our hop today and please take a peek at the posts from our talented group of stampers.
