Sat. 3/25/2011 CSS Sketch Hop

Well, I hope you are ready for another Center Stage Alumni Hop.  This time Melissa Cash gave us a great sketch to work with for this hop.
If you arrived from Joy Hadden's BLOG, you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE.



Here is my card, where I used a sentiment from Gina K's "Floral Wreath" stamp set.  I colored the metal accents with Alcohol inks, to match my card.


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!

I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment for me, but now you've got to head over to Kay's BLOG and check out her beautiful work! You won't be disappointed!
