Gina K Designs April CSS Hop

Welcome to the Stamp TV's CSS hop!
If you came from the talented Tera's blog you are right on track. If not, please head over to Stamp TV to start at the beginning so you do not miss the eye candy that the girls have created to share with all of  you.
This month Melissa provided us with this fun sketch for our inspiration.

I decided it would be fun to flip the sketch....so that's what I did ;D

This fashionable lady is from the Sew Pretty stamp set. I paper pieced her dress and apron with the same pattern papers I used on the card which is Cosmo Crickets Material Girl. She reminds me so much of June Clever so I could not resist adding pearls for her bracelet, necklace and earring.

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Gina K Designs - Sew Pretty
Ink: Memento
Paper: Gina K Designs - Pure Luxury, Cosmo Cricket - Material Girl, Copic Blending
Other: Spellbinders - Rectangles, Sewing Machine, Copics - R11/E000, 00, 31, 35/YR20, W00, 0.

Now before I send you on your way to the amazing Miesje's blog, I want to remind you to leave a comment on each designer's blog as you hop along. On Tuesday morning (April 24), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that lucky person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

What a great Mothers day card. I am sure all of us Mothers remembers those aprons. I love how you pieced her clothing to match the paper you used. Piecing is so "fashionable" right now with paper crafters, not to mention money saving. We all have so many scraps.
