Welcome to another Center Stage Spotlight Alumni (CSS) blog hop.
This time we are using this awesome sketch from Melissa Cash for our challenge.
And speaking of Melissa - It is her Birthday today so we all decided to use her sketch and make her a Birthday card!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Melissa !!!!!!
If you are following along the hop then you came to me from Miesje - www.miesdf.blogspot.com/2011/08/css-sketch-blog-hop-8122011.html and I am sure she wowed you!!!! - If you didn't come along the hop you can always pop back to Stamp TV and start from the begining so you don't miss anything!!!
For my card , I didn't follow the sketch so perfect - every time I tried to add the other elements to this card to match the sketch it just didn't look right, so I left it alone :).
I also used this weeks Monday challenge inspiration photo over at Stamp TV - I just love the red and the teal colors together and liked the look of the horizontal blinds too.....
I used images from Melanies' set - 'Buds and Vases' . The flowers are colored with copics and the vase was stamped and embossed onto vellum and then cut out.
The phrase is from Ninas' set - 'Elegant Post'. I used my scor pal to scor the lines.
I added some yellow dots as accents to pick up the yellow in the inspiration photo too.
Don't forget to stop by everyone on the hop and leave a comment for each of us - Gina is giving away a stamp set on this hop - tuesday am the 16th they will pick one random commenter to receive a free stamp set ($24.95 or less).
Ok that is all for me this evening so I am sending you on to Vicki - www.allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/2011/07/css-hop-gina-k-designs-sketch.html
And I am sure she has something awesome to show you!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!!
