Gina K Designs May Blog Hop Day 3

I hope you are enjoying the GKD Blog Hop.  I bet you are getting a ton of inspiration from the Team.  Today, we are featuring By the Sea, illustrated by Theresa Momber and the Buy 3 Get One Free  Elegant Elements.  Here is my sample for By the Sea:
My sketch is from the Card Positioning System (CPS-sketch) challenge this week.  GKD is sponsoring!  What to win a set?  Play in the challenge, and you might be the random winner!  It is a great sketch by Tami Mayberry.

The second card today is from Elegant Elements.  Another winner from Gina!
Stamped, punched, popped up, done. Easy peasy card and I LOVE IT! Such a great sentiment for encouragement. I wish my son could appreciate it.  Such talent he has, but he doesn't show it enough. {sigh}

That's it for me, pop on over and see the other DT's fabulous samples!
Thanks for stopping by~

I too love the sentiment expressed in your card using the Elegant elements set. If only more young people would embrace being themselves instead of trying to be like everyone else. Great job on your samples.
