Stamp TV's CSS Alumni Blog Hop - inspiration challenge

Hi there,
Time for another fun blog hop by the CSS Alumni Group at STV - these are so fun. You should have come from the awesome and wonderfully talented blog of JOY HADDEN and if you wanted to start from the beginning of the hop - click here.
 For this hop we were challenged to create from this wonderful group of photos:
eeeks! there is so much here that grabbed my eye - especially the colors...!! WOW


This was done using GKD's "Hope is Faith" Butterfly with Melanie Muenchinger's set from GKD - "Branchin Out"... and the sentiment is from Melanie's GKD Stamp set "Arranged with love"
clear embossed the butterfly and added mini pearls in leaves

for this card I really got into the colors and just HAD to use that stash ribbon LOL
The set is GKD's "Autumn Beauty" by Therea Momber
colored with Copics E18, 29, Y26, YG63, 67 and G24
embossed background mat with THoltz folder
ok, that's it for me....

Now, hop over to my friend LORI McAREE - she always has something that will make your jaw drop!

Enjoy the hop!!
hugs
