Inspiration Hop Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to day 2 of the GKD Inspiration Hop!!!  
My first card is from Theresa's Whimsical Spring set.  Such a gorgeous and versatile set!!  And the name makes me happy with "spring" in it :)  I used the sketch from this weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast, thought it worked so well!!  I haven't gone white on white for a while so I thought it was time again :)

Next is my card from Girl Talk.  What a fun set this is!!  Love all the fun sentiments to!!  I colored the girl, cut her out and popped her up with foam tape.  I added a little glossy accents to her glasses and small gold pearls to the center of the flower and her necklace.  I scored around the panel twice, love scoring!!
Thanks so much for hopping along with us!!!

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!!
