Welcome to the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop.

Screen Shot 2021-05-25 at 5.09.26 AMWe are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that love to share what we do.  This month's theme is Pick a Season.  I am thinking that it doesn't matter what the season is, but I decided to stay with Fall or Autumn.  The Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper reminds me so much of one of my Maple Trees.  I swear that the leaves are pink.

I decided to use the Sparkle of the Season Suite.  This is actually the Bundle that we are using for the October YCA Monthly Card Club.  It is great for lots of different seasons.  I made this card for a Mystery Challenge using the Colour Petal Pink.  I am loving the Colour Combination of Petal Pink and Blackberry Bliss.  What  do you think?

So here is my card.  I will make sure to include a supply list below. Sparkle of the Season Stampin' Up Stmpin With Diane Evans 5

And check out the closeup using the Beautiful Blackberry DSP.
