Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, We have another fun hop for you today using a color challenge this week.  The colors are Pool Party, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.  What an unusual combination that to my surprise created a really pretty card.  I love to see colors that I would not normally use together turn out beautifully.  I guess that is why they call it a challenge!  Enjoy!
