Stampin’ Up! “Winds of Change” card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers:  Today we have a sketch challenge and I inked up my new “Winds of Change” stamp set.  I bought this set because I loved the sentiments and had a few people in mind when I saw the set.    Coloring is my passion and this set did not disappoint as it was fun and relaxing to color in the stamped images.

The Sketch:

I turned my card from portrait to landscape
