January's Flower of the Month digi stamps from Lila Grey Stamps are snowdrops. My color selection was inspired by the Tuesday Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com. Last weeks' color combination was Hello Honey, Rose Red and Garden Green (all colors by Stampin' Up). The challenge does not require you to use Stampin' Up inks, but shades similar. I did not have any of these inks colors from SU!, but I do have the CTMH Honey and I used Melon Mambo and an assortment of greens from my stash.
