Gina K CSS Sentiment Hop!!

Hi everyone and welcome to our Gina K CSS hop!!  If you've arrived from Melissa's blog you are on the right track, if not, be sure to stop by Stamp TV to start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a thing!!
This hop we are getting wordy!!  Gina has some fantastic sentiment stamp sets along with sets with such beautiful sentiments and I picked one of my very favorites!!  I have always loved Elegant Flowers, I use this set a LOT!!!  I used my favorite sentiment in the set and went with a simple ivory on ivory design.  I not so carefully went around all the panels with my distress ink pads and raised the second and sentiment panel with foam tape and pierced the corners and about the middle of the outside of the flower panel.
You will want to be sure to leave a comment on everyone's blog, Gina is generously giving away a set to one lucky winner!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, the uber talented Linda is next on the hop!!
