Gina K Designs CSS Blog Hop

If you are here for the CSS Hop, you should be coming from Stamp TV. I am so happy to be the first stop on today's fun hop!! :)
So, the theme for this hop is a shaker card and Fall.  Well, as you can see my "Fall" consists of flowers and butterflies (in the shaker portion).  I am probably really pushing the limit with my "Fall", colors, but I loved this card and decided to use it anyway.  I used the totally fun designer papers from Echo Park Dots & Stripes (only my FAVORITE combination) and I used the Gina K Designs sentiment from the stamp set Dreams, illustrated by Tami Mayberry.  GKD sells the doilies and she also sells the Spellbinders Labels 4.  [Extra bling and flowers are from Michael's.] Entered this in Fluttering By too
Be sure and leave a comment along your way, there will be a random winner of [your choice]  up to a $24.95  Gina K Designs stamp set!  Oh, free is so good!!  Thank you Gina!!
I hope you have fun with the hop and get totally shaken up and inspired! Your next stop is Tera Fujan's blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

I would have not thought about using die cuts for the shaker items, it's so simple if you dont have the traditional things like glitter or flocking. And less messy too. LOL you have opened up a world of ideas to me.
