Gina K CSS Alumni Sketch Hop!!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Gina K Center Stage Spotlight hop!!  If you've arrived from Kay's blog you are on the right track, if not, be sure to stop by Stamp TV to start at the beginning!!   For this hop we have a great sketch from Melissa!!  Love this sketch: 
For my card I wanted to use the new Free with 3, Stenciled Spring.  I fell in love with this set the second I saw it and the new color Wild Lilac is gorgeous!!  I was so inspired by the video Gina did today for the color challenge, I had to do the same thing.  It has been a long time since I have colored on my stamps so it was a lot of fun!!

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 29th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!  Next on the hop is Melissa!

Paper:  Gina K White & Wild Lilac
Ink: Memento London Fog,  Memento Markers:  Bamboo Leaves, London Fog, LuLu Lavendar, New Sprout & Grape Jelly
