Stamp TV CSS Alumni Hop

Welcome to the monthly Stamp TV CSS Alumni blog hop!

If you came from Miesje's awesome 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 Melissa Cash provided us with a great sketch to follow while creating out projects.
Here is my take on the sketch. This time I was not a rebel and pretty much kept with the sketch :)

I used the Bold Flowers Stamp and the kissing technique for the top square panel. The sentiment is from Pleasant Plurals. I added a bit of stitching around a couple of the layers and finished off the card with pearls.
Now before I send you on your way to fabulous Tera's blog to see what she has to share with us, I want to remind you to leave a comment on each designer's blog as you hop along. On Tuesday morning (July 17), 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!


Card Supplies:
Stamps: Gina K Designs - Bold Flowers & Pleasant Plurals
Ink: SU, Distressed Inks
Paper: SU, Gina K Designs, Bazzill, Basic Grey - Hopscotch
Other: Pearls, PTI Double Ended Banner, Sewing Machine
