Gina K Designs April Blog Hop Day 2

Today we were featuring GKD Branching Out, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  I love frames, and this one with the leaves is just awesome!  I did use some flowers from Mel's other set,  Basket Blessings, along with a sentiment from GKD's Timeless Treasures.

I used this card for my release party sample, however,  I was so happy with it I wanted to share it again today.  I just love making silhouette cards, and this GKD set, Follow Your Dreams, illustrated by Theresa Momber, is just perfect for them!  Fun, fun images.  We are back again tomorrow - stop on by for more inspiration~ have fun on the rest of the hop.


Thanks for stopping by~




Here are the rest of the DT's:
