Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Toil and Trouble

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.


I realized when I was making my product list that is card does not use any ink or stamp set!  I think this might be a first!!!!!!
