Inspiration Hop Day 1

Hi everyone!!  Did you have fun last night at the release party?  I always do, they are so much fun and don't like when they end!!  First up I have a card to share with you from Melanie's new set Stately Flowers 3, another fabulous set in her series!  I chose to color the Forget Me Not's, fun!!!

Next up is from Rupa's new set Mehndi Wishes, gorgeous set!  I  did a bit of research before coloring this image and found most of them aren't colored but I couldn't help myself!!  Normally I am not a big horse person but this image spoke to me!  My sketch is from last weeks challenge on SCS which worked perfectly as I wanted to use 2 types of dp!!  I just love this paper, I hope you had a chance to order some!


You'll want to hop and see all the fabulous Inspiration the Design Team has in store!!  And don't forget to leave comments along the way!!  2 commenters will be chosen randomly to win a Grab Bag of fabulous Gina K. stamps!!
