Stampin’ Up! Time for Tea for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I decided to use the paper from the Time for Tea suite called Tea Room.  With so many beautiful papers you could create several different combinations with the colors in the palate.    Today I chose  Crushed Curry and  Coastal Cabana for my color theme.  Enjoy.
