Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

Center Stage Alumni Sketch Challenge Hop

Another blog hop from the Stamp TV Center Stage Alumni group! You should have arrived here from the awesome blog of the Linda Payne. If you didn't, jump back over to Stamp TV and start the hop from the beginning so you don't miss any of the gorgeous creations from the Center Stage Alumni team.

This time we are doing a sketch challenge hop using this fun sketch created by the super talented Melissa Cash!

I had a blast making my card for this hop! I rarely make shape cards so this was out of my usual zone and I have to say I really enjoyed it. It made me think a bit more creatively, which is always a good thing!

I started with a scalloped circle made from Pure Luxury White and cut out using my largest scalloped nestie. The dp is Cosmo Cricket DeLovely. The layers are cut from Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and Key Lime (have you gotten this new color yet from Gina K? It is gorgeous and just says 'summer' to me!) and layering weight white. I stamped the flower from the Gina K set Garden Silhouettes using Memento Rose Bud and New Sprout markers. The sentiment is from Gina K Elegant Flowers. The flowers are from a pack from Michael's and the Baker's Twine is from Raisin Boat.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (May 17th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that lucky person will get a stamp set of their choice from Gina K Designs valued up to $24.95!

Next stop on the hop is Karen. I'm sure she has something amazing to share!
