Stampin’ Up! Enjoy Life for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a color challenge using the combination of Night of Navy, Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover.  Whenever we have a color challenge my first step it to go to my Designer Series Paper to see what inspires me.  The colors in the challenge matched perfectly with the DSP, Happiness Blooms.  This was great inspiration for the paper but I did not order the matching stamp set.  I put my thinking cap on an decided to use the Enjoy Life stamp set.  Can you believe that I have not used this set???  I am so happy I finally inked it up.  I don’t think this will be the last card I do with this versatile stamp set.

Here is the color challenge:
