CSS Alumni Treasure Chest Challenge!!

Hi everyone and welcome to another Gina K CSS Alumni Hop!!  If you've arrived from Miesje's fabulous blog you are in the right place, if not, be sure to head to Stamp TV for the list of participants so you don't miss a thing!! 
This time around we are doing a Treasure Chest challenge and our theme is to use any of the Stamp TV kits!!  Fun fun!!!   I love this pot of flowers from my very first kit Eclectic Summer and my sentiment is from Sent with Love.  I'm loving Gina's newest color Key Lime and wanted to incorporate it into my card.  When I received my latest order, I had also ordered Bubblegum Pink and white, as I pulled them out of the package I thought it was such a pretty color combo so I went with it for tonights card!!  I also wanted to combine this card with the last VSN challenge on Splitcoast to use some kind of wood on our card.  I used Gina's Weathered Wood technique for the pot and the background layer.  I used my Tim Holtz Woodgrain Texture Fade embossing folder to add to the wood look.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to head over to Linda's fabulous blog!!!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Gina K Eclectic Summer & Sent With Love
