CSS Sketch Blog Hop

I hope you arrived here from the fabulous Karen's blog. If you did, you are on the right track for the hop. If you didn't, don't fret, just hop back over to Stamp TV and start at the beginning.

Today it's time for another Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Alumni blog hop. We are doing a sketch blog hop this time and here is the sketch we used for our inspiration.


Here's the card I made using Melissa's sketch as inspiration.

I love the wine and green colors together with the touch of pink.  Here's all the details for the card.

Paper:
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury - Wine with Everything, Fresh Asparagus, Bubblegum Pink and White; Patterned paper is from the Stamp TV Kit.
Stamps: Gina K Designs Sent with Love and Tag Lines
Ribbon: Stamp TV Kit
Buttons and Brads: Basic Grey Sultry
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics
Miscellaneous: SU punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities, SU labels sizzlet

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card. Now hop along to Linda's blog to see more sketch inspiration. I am sure she has something fabulous to share.

Be sure to leave a comment on each blog as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that lucky person will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95 from Gina K Designs!
