CSS circle sketch






Hallo,




Well despite blogger it looks like the Gina K CSS blog hop is still on for today :).





Looks like I am first of the list this time-aaakkkk :) This time we are following an awesome sketch from our own Melissa Cash. I rarely do circle cards but they are fun when I do :)





Make sure to leave comments on the way because on tuesday am (may 17th) one lucky commenter will win a free stamp set (up to a value of 24.95)





For my first card I used 'The Journey' by Asela and 'A year of borders' by Melanie. I colored the seashells and background with prismacolor pencils and the main image of the kids with copics.

For the next 2 cards I used the 'Heirloom Ornaments' and 'Winter Mittens' both by Nina. I embossed the ornament in gold on one and red sparkle embossing powder on the other. The snowflakes are embossed with white. The background is red glimmer mist with gold glimmer mist over the top.

Ok all for me - now on to see the very talented SHARRI - www.istamp4u.blogspot.com/2011/05/gina-ks-may-css-alumni-hop.html

Take Care
Off to work for me tonight!!!!
Tera
