Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Fun Fold Card for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a color challenge using at least 3 of the 6 color choices.  I am used 4 of this combination which were Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz and Evening Evergreen.  The other two colors were Just Jade and Mint Macaron .    These are such beautiful colors and the Pansy Petals DSP was my inspiration for the inks I choice.  And since this DSP is retiring, I thought I had better use it up.  Please stop by all the other creative blog members  posts  today and see what beautiful cards they are sharing today.
