STAMPTV CSS SKETCH BLOG HOP

Welcome to this months StampTV CSS group blog hop challenge.  This time it's a sketch hop and the sketch was created by the super talented BrendaTurner.   

If you came here from the very talented Geri's blog, you're in the right place.  If not, you'll want to link back to the beginning so you don't miss one inspiring moment. 

And guess what?  Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, April 16." 

Also, you're invited to join our challenge and create a card using Brenda's sketch.  Just link your card to the thread on the forum. 

Here's what I created

 
The GKD stamp set used for my card was "Warm With Love" by Theresa Momber.  I love this set for it's bold images.  At first I thought I would color the bg of this image, but then, I really liked the stark white of the bg and the way it pops from the paper. 

Now hop on over to the sketch artist of our hop, Brenda's blog, and see her awesome card. 

Thanks for coming by,
