Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a color challenge using Night of Navy, Garden Green and Whisper White.  I was planning on using the rest of my Country Club DSP but had so much fun using the paper last week, I used it all up.  I put my thinking cap on,  decided to try a pop up card using the Someone Special stamp set and matching dies.   This fun pop up card is so versatile, any stamp set will work.  Hope you will try it and so share with me what you made using this fun technique.

The color challenge:
