We are doing a sketch hop today using this fun sketch created by Melissa. I like working from sketches because I can focus on the fun stuff like the colors, images, and embellishments instead of fussing about the layout/design. LOL! I do plenty of that, so it is nice to use someone else's idea sometimes to create a card, especially when the mojo is lacking as mine has been lately. Must be the summer heat!
Here is my card made from this sketch.
Tropical Nature. This set is fabulous for summer or vacation cards. The sentiment is from that set also. I used the Pretty Patterns set that Melanie Muenchinger created for the latest release. Such a fun set to play with, and I tried it in the clear stamps so I could easily line the patterns up. I've not been a fan of clear stamps until now. I really love the high quality of the new "Clearly Gina" stamps. Give them a try if you haven't already!
Other card ingredients:
Cardstock: Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Lime, Wild Dandelion, and White
Ink: Memento Dandelion, New Sprout, Desert Sand, Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Toffee Crunch
Ribbon: Carnival Ribbon Assortment from Gina K Designs
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment at each blog as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (July 17), 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 Linda's beautiful blog to see how the sketch inspired her.
