Stampin’ Up! “Magical Day” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers: Well today we have a color challenge of Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Gray.  These colors work beautifully with the Myths and Magic Designer Series Paper.  I inked up the Magical Days stamp set and had a blast making this spin and twist card.  I watched dozens of videos on how to make this fun fold card.  I know there will be one more spin and twist card this coming Monday on my blog so watch for another fun card.
