Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - Anything Goes

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is "Anything Goes".  

I created this card as part of a sketch challenge for a recent Stamp Camp.  I love how this card turned out and love the Hello, Irresistible Products from the March Online Exclusives.  I love the colour combination of Evening Evergreen and Soft Seafoam.  How about you?
