Gina K Designs CSS Sketch Hop

To see who is hopping today, click here.



Isn't this a great sketch that Melissa made! Love it - you can go simple or go elaborate, whatever you choose. I went with a more masculine card -- I always need more of those! Using the dp from the STV Stamp Kit, along with the new freebie paper Gina gave us (doesn't she rock!) this is my card. I sponged in my striped panels with a dauber and red ink. Kind of like that technique of "changing the color". I used GKD Celebrate the Season for my main focal panel. Not to hard of a card to make!

Have fun on the rest of the hop today! Pop on over to SUE MORRIS - You will see some terrific inspiration I have no doubt!  One random commenter will win their choice of stamp set up to $24.95!!  Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by~

I love it GF....love that you used the free digi paper. Perfect masculine card. I wanted to remind your hoppers that if they leave a comment on your blog, they'll be entered in a drawing for a free GKD stamp set ($24.95 value). Yipppeee!

Great card. Thanks for opting for masculine. It's so difficult to come up with "man" ideas -- especially when they have no hobby like hunting or fishing.

I love how you used the background paper, much more effective than a solid sheet would have been.
