Clearly Inspired Challenge #11

Yay! It's time again for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at ClearlyiStamp! These week's challenge is a color challenge, and we're using some new Clear Dollar Stamps colors from the Summer Fun collection. The colors are Cherry Go Round, Bee Pollen, and Lime Juice. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. . .I LOVE these papers! They layer wonderfully or work well on their own. I pulled out a new release for April to ink up. . .Charlie Bee Happy, and paired the colors up with the Cosmo Cricket paper called Garden Variety. Charlie looks so darn cute dressed up as a bee, don't you think?
