Hello Friends! Welcome to another addition to Clearly Inspired Challenges. This month we challenge you to a Color Challenge ... The colors are ...
Soft Mint, Porcelin Pink and Cottonball White.

These beautiful colors are all from Clear Dollar Stamps Spring Whispers Clearly Coordinating collection. If you havent heard of that yet, it is awesome... Lori has cardstock, ribbon, tombows, copics and some hybrid ink pads that all MATCH! 

Well, before I get into the changes to the CIC, let me share my card for the challenge.

This first CIC of March ends on March 17th and a new challenge will be posted March 18th on Lori's blog: Clearlyistamp. You can also check back there to see if you are one of the lucky winners!!
