Love Flower Patch

This week's Inkredible color challenge is:   Tangelo Twist, Pacific Point and Soft Sky.    So as I said before, the mind wants what the mind wants.   I saw Pacific Point but when I put the card together I did not take Pacific Point as my paper.   Nope I took Lost Lagoon.   What can I say the color combo with Lost Lagoon made me think of summer and I don't want it to be over.    So let's pretend that Lost Lagoon is actually Pacific Point!!  lol.  

Ingredients to make the card:
Stamp Sets:  Flower Patch, On Your Birthday
Ink:   Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon
