Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  The Forever Blossoms stamp set was calling to be inked up and it worked beautifully with the sketch.  I decided to use a bold color for the flowers to change it up a bit from the soft DSP that complements this bundle.  I love the way a bright color makes this set new again.

The sktech:
