CSS Alumni Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp TV's CSS Alumni May blog hop!
If you came by the way of Miesje’s fabulous blog you are right on track. If not, please head over to Stamp TV to start at the beginning so you do not miss any of the wonderful creations the girls have made to share with all of us.
This month Brenda provided us with this fabulous photo to use as our inspiration when creating our projects.
I noticed that beautiful quilt right away and then the flowers on the pillow and used those two things as inspiration for my card.

The vase of flowers is from Purr-fectly Delightful and is colored with copics – R02, 05, 08/E23, 25, 27, 29, 40, 41/BG10, 11/YG21, 23, 25/C00, 0, 1/W00, 0.
I added a bit of stickles to the flower petals and centers. The sentiment is from Fanciful Tags.
I tried to create a quilt look for my background by embossing the pattern paper, adding stitching along the edges and inking around the edges with distressed ink.  I finished it off with lace and pearl flourishes.
Now before I send you on your way to the see what gorgeous creation Tera has to share, I want to remind you to leave a comment on each designer's blog as you hop along. On Tuesday morning (May 15), 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!
