CSS Sketch Blog Hop

Whoo hooo!  Tonight I have joined forces with some of my besties from the GKD Center Stage Design Team to share with you some amazing creations using the sketch you see below.  You should have arrived at my blog from Lori's awesome blog.  If not, you will want to go back to StampTV and start from the beginning. 

 I used the beautiful Whimsical Wishes set that I was lucky enough to win from Theresa Momber.  Just in case you didn't know it, Theresa is the one who illustrated this beautiful set.  That girl has some mad talent!!!  I started with a base card of Fresh Asparagus and then added this beautiful print from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I have had the print paper for quite some time and don't know what collection it is from.  Next, I stamped the sentiment and dragonfly image and then finished off the card with the trio of botanicals that I cut out using my circle nesties.  I am going to send you on your way to Miesje's awesome blog so that you can check out the beauty that she has created.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (August 16th), 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!
