CSS Inspiration Blog Hop 6-4-2013

Welcome to another Blog Hop based on this really pretty inspiration picture that Vicki found for us. You should have arrived from Linda Payne where I am sure you saw some wonderful eye candy!


I usually try to make a couple of cards for these fun Blog Hops but this time I only had time for the one. I chose to go with the colors from the inspiration photo. I used GKD Sweet Corn and Blue Raspberry. The images are from the last Stamp TV set; Dreams take Flight and Sweet Friend. I used some gems to add some shine and glimmer. 


When I got home from work today I quickly threw together another card. It is now 7 minutes till this blog hop goes live so not too much details here. Another one that focuses on the colors. I used the stamp set called A Year of Flowers 2 and Poster Board Sentiments. Fun quick card that I need for a friend tomorrow. I colored the flowers with 2 different shades of Distress Inks and a pen nib. A button and a little ribbon - card done! 

Now you have to hop on over to check out what Tera Fujan has created for us to see.  

Thanks for the visit!
