Stampin’ Up! Another Bloom and Grow card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I wanted to use the new Seaside Spray ribbon and the Feels Like Frost Paper from the Holiday Catalog and came up with my card.   inspiration.  I did not purchase the stamp set or dies that go with the paper and ribbon so I had to use a different set. Don’t you think the Bloom and Grow stamp set and dies work well?  Enjoy the hop and get your creative juices flowing to create or CASE my card.
