Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Hi Stampers, It has been few weeks since I have participated in our team blog hop.  We are moving to Kentucky and my card making had to take a back seat while we took care of some moving projects and travel. I am back and so excited to finally get to play with all my new products from the current catalog.  Today is a sketch challenge and I decided to ink up the Sweet As A Peach stamp set.  The DSP is gorgeous and the coordinating dies makes this card fun and easy to do.  Join our hop and do stop by all of our creative teams blogs to see what they created.  Happy Stamping!

The sketch:
