Stamp TV CSS Sketch Hop

It is time for another Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight alumni blog hop. If you came to my blog from Linda's lovely site, you are on the right path. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, jump back to Stamp TV to find the full list of participants and start with the first blog so you don't miss any of the gorgeous creations along the way.

Our hop this time is a sketch hop and is based on this sketch created by Melissa Cash. I like working with sketches and this one was no exception. I went with a very literal interpretation of the sketch, but I can see many possibilites for using it in different ways, and I just may have to try some of them for future cards!


Here is the card I made using the sketch. I was in the mood for something very springy, so here is my "sending you sunshine" card with loads of springtime in it!

Card elements:
Cardstock: Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Grass Green and White
                   Stampin' Up Cameo Coral
Patterned Paper: Gina K Designs Petals and Wings
Stamps: Gina K Designs Sending You Sunshine
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Cantaloupe; Stampin' Up Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Apricot Appeal

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to leave a comment at each blog as you go along, because on Tuesday morning (April 24) we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Now head on over to see what Joy has waiting for you.
