STAMPTV CSS COLOR COMBO BLOG HOP

Hello blog friends!! 

The StampTV Center Stag Spotlight group has another blog hop for you.  It's an opportunity to be inspired by Gina K Stamps and to win a fabulous grab bag full of 'em.  Just leave a message on each blog and you'll be entered to win.  The winner will be announced on the forum thread on February 12.

On this hop, we're welcoming back some of our group members who have been out in blogland designing.  They're back and we're thrilled.

 Diana Queen is one and if you've just come from her blog, you're in the right place.  If not, then you're invited to go to the beginning and start there so you don't miss any of the fabulous creations by this very talented group.   

This time, Geri has challenged us to a color challenge using pink/red with a neutral color of black, white or tan.  We hope you'll join us and create a project or card.  If you do, just link your project up on the thread for this hop.

Here's my card for the challenge

 
The rose and sentiment images are from the newest stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger "Stately Flowers 6".   The rose was heat embossed using white ep and then sponged with Memento ink "Rose Bud" , "Pear Tart" and "Bamboo Leaves".  

Now, head on over to the super talented Brenda's blog.  She's waiting to show you something fabulous!!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Don't forget to comment so you can get in the drawing for some fabulous stamps.
