Groovin’ on the Ginkgo Branch Bundle

Groovin' with a Ginkgo Branch Friend Card - Ginkgo Branch Bundle from Stampin' Up! Design Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Today’s friend card is another example of why I’m groovin’ on the Stampin’ Up! Gingko Branch Bundle. Luscious layers and yummy colors give the card a bold and lively personality.

WHAT I LOVE ! Color on color! Stamping the gingko branch in Starry Sky ink onto Orchid Oasis card stock produces a textured and subtle richness.

NEED COLOR INSPIRATION? The colors used on this card are based from the color combination shown below, one of five that I shared on Tuesday’s post.
