The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #35

Welcome from Nicole's blog.
This week we had a special colour challenge. It was to use three of the new 2015-17 In Colours.

Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of getting these as yet so I came up with my own alternative using the soon to be retired 2013-15 In Colours. I must say that I am very sad to see these go but the new ones above that are replacing them are quite similar. 

Firstly I made these two cute baby cards.
