Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a color challenge for you!  It was a “challenge” for me because the last two posts I shared using the perfect paper and stamp set that would match with our color challenge.   I thought, “I cant use the same stamp set as last week so, I put my thinking cap on and used the Country Lane paper but changed the stamp set to Winter Woods.  Have fun with our hop and take a peek at the other cards our team has created today.

    So pretty. That embossed background adds so much to the trees. Your extra touches, Iike the sponging and that little leaf trinket, are prefect! Can’t wait to see what you do with it on Monday!
