Gina K CSS Alumni Sketch Hop!!

Hi everyone!! It's time for another Center Stage Alumni hop!! If you have arrived from Linda's blog you are on the right track, if not, head to Stamp TV to start at the beginning!! For this hop we were given a sketch designed by Melissa!! Great sketch with lots of possibilites, thanks Melissa!! I also decided to issue myself a challenge, not sure if I should have done it for the hop, but we need to start some time don't we ;). Typically I do white cards, I decided I need to switch it up and use more colors for my base and layers. I love all the beautiful papers in the Stamp TV Kit, Sent with Love, so I picked this pattern and went from there with my image and the base and layering colors. I will continue to work on it, it will take some time to get used to!
Be sure to leave comments on the girls blogs along the hop, Gina is giving away a set to a lucky commenter!!
Go check out the gorgeousness Melissa has for you!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Gina K Stamp TV Kit, Sent with Love
Paper: Gina K Lemon Drop, Chocolate & Green Apple
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Tools/Accessories: Crystals, Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder, Copics: Y13 & YG97
