GKD CSS Alumni Blog hop

hi there,
hope you're enjoying our inspiration blog hop. If you get side tracked you can always start from STV.
you should have arrived here from JOY's Fabulous Blog

you've seen our inspiration photo , but just in case....here is what we are designing from...

I immediately saw a very clean card...and using Nina's "Lovely Shelf" combined with Theresa's "Hope Grows"...created this card
this is done with GKD cs Bubble Gum pink, and Chocolate, sponged edges with Memento Angel Pink and Cocoa...used gold glitter pen on leaves...

then continued to think about the inspiration photo and came up with this next card....went with this week's STV Sketch Challenge and a little geometric lamp from scraps

this one is done with Basic Grey "Infuse" designer paper, matted onto GKD Chocolate and white base.
Sentiment is from GKD's "Winter Foliage" combined again with Theresa's "Hope Grows".

You can purchase these sets and cardstock and inks from Gina K Designs Online Store.

well that's it for me - hope you are inspired !! now the next stop is over to Lori's Incredible Blog
Enjoy the hop and looking forward to seeing your creations from the inspiration photo over in the STV Gallery...
have a wonderful weekend  and thanks so much for stopping by!!
