Gina K's May CSS Alumni Hop

Hello and welcome to our GKD CSS Alumni May blog hop!
If you came from the ubber talented Tera Fujan, you are right on track. If not, please head on over to Stamp TV to start at the beginning. The girls have some awesome cards they created just for you and I would not want you to miss a single one!

Tonight we are getting sketchy! Melissa provided us with this fabulous sketch to use for our projects. I LOVE shaped cards so this sketch was right up my alley!


The base of my card was made with the Grand Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestibilities. The pattern papers are a combination of Basic Grey's Olivia and Hopscotch papers.

The image is from Gina K's Purr-fectly Delightful. I colored the daisies with copics - ROOO, R01, R20, G21, G24, G85, E23, E25, B0000, B000 and B00. I added stickles to the petals for some sparkle and a thick coat of crystal lacquer to the vase and centers of the daisies. I finished off my card with some lace and pearls.


Make 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 who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Now I am going to send you on your way to the fabulous Miesje Flach. I know she will have an amazing project for you!

Enjoy the rest of the hop!!
