Hello and welcome to our April Blog Hop here at Ink.Stamp.Share.  If you are following today's hop then you would have reached me from the talented Jo Blackman who prepared such a lovely project for us!

We have all created projects using a specific set of colours.  I am always nervous with a colour challenge as I have a certain 'comfort zone' when i'm creating but I was really pleased to see today's colours as they are all ones that I really enjoy using! I hope you enjoy the projects that we have made for you today and if these colours are different to those in your 'comfort zone' I hope you might feel inspired to create with them.

For my project today, I have created a card with a fancy fold for you.  It's a really simple one to put together and looks really effective when you stand it up.  I love sending handmade cards so it's always nice to do something a little different but not too challenging!

I have used a piece of Rococo Rose DSP from the the 2019-21 In-Colour DSP stack for my background, attached in small pieces to each section of my card, layered with Whisper White cardstock.

For the main feature of my card, I have stamped the main image from the BRAND NEW Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set and coloured with Stampin' Blends in the four colours from today's challenge.  I have stamped the image using a Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad as I wanted to continue the subtle colour feel of the card, and Black felt too bold. I have used the Colour Lifter Stampin' Blend to blend my colours together and I hope you'll agree that they all look lovely when used together. I have cut around the image, leaving a white border and attached it to the main section of the card. 

To finish, I have added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the soon to retire Perennial Birthday Stamp Set, also stamped in Basic Gray.  I have also added two stamped and coloured flowers to my envelope to bring the whole project together!
