Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  The Natures Prints stamp set and coordinating Sun Prints DSP  were a great choice for this challenge.  I love the organic feel of the leaves in the stamp set and the paper is gorgeous with all the deep blue tones.  This easy, fast  design could be done in any color. If blue is not your color, how about Just Jade or Parakeet Party?  Any of your favorite colors would work.  Try a few colors and let me know what your favorite is.

  • Die cut the sentiment with the Stylish Shapes Die
