CSS - Color Blog Hop - 6/8/2012


It is another StampTV blog hop. This time around it is a color challenge. These colors are so rich and vibrant, it was fun to work with.
 
You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog with what I am sure was a wonderful project! 

For some reason I had a hard time with a card for this challenge. I like pink and purple but I had to make a specific card for a friend who was laid off from work and I needed to get it done quickly. So I went with the sentiment and image from the GKD stamp set called Great Sayings. It said exactly what I wanted to share with her. I did incorporate all of the colors and added some pearls and a a ribbon.The pretty patterned paper is from the GKD paper pack called Parisian garden.
Now hop on over to visit Tera Fujan she always has a wonderfully creative project to share. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (June12), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!

Karen M. Roth said...

I just love the phrase on this card and the flowers :o) Hun, I have been facing one bitter trial after another my whole life and it has not been until the last 8 years that things have started looking up....not including my health or finances which are both bottoming out. My soul is what is looking up to my heavenly father and crying,"Daddy, please heal me". Visit my blog sometime and you will understand. Again, what a wonderful card just in the knick of time {{{hugz}}} Thank you! My soul has been on a very tough journey one that is now getting easier yet harder at the same time.
