Gina K Designs May Blog Hop Day 2

I hope you all had a nice long holiday week end, I didn't, I worked yesterday.  But, on the up side it is time and half~~ gotta love those paid holidays.
Today is day 2 for the newly released GKD stamp sets. We are featuring Dreams, illustrated by Tami Mayberry, and Birthday Bash, illustrated by Rupa Shevde.
Here is my sample for Dreams.  I used the beautiful designer paper from Pinkpaislee Butterfly Garden.  This paper just takes my breath away -- I think it is gorgeous! (Yes, it is available at GKD's store)

Here is a close up of the sentiment.
And here is the card I made for Giovana's party challenge - Black & White.
and the close up 

Here is my sample for Birthday Bash:


My colors were inspired from a virtual birthday cake someone sent me for my birthday a few days ago.  Is this a fun cake or what!  I loved the bright colors (and was able to use the new Lime Green cardstock!) and they went perfect for this fun birthday card.  My bg dots are from Vintage Background.

I also made this card for my nephew who lost his best friend, his dog Morgan, on Saturday.  I so feel his pain -- loosing a dog just rips your heart out, especially when you have no kids -- THEY ARE your kids.  I think he will appreciate this card. 


I love the versatility of this set - from Happy Birthday to I'm sorry for your loss.
Now, keep going and see what else the Design Team has created.  I'll be back with Day 3 tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by~

How sweet of you to remember your nephew's dog this way. They are our children in so many ways! I love all the details in your vintage card, too. The butterflies naturally fit with the sentiment, but I really love the type of butterflies you used. Terrific job! ♥ky
