CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the first Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Alumni Blog Hop...Whoohoo!!! We are all excited to get together so we can share ideas and provide you with lots of inspiration!!! To kick off our blog hop, Carolina Buchting challenged us to a color challenge: Kraft or Tan Leather, Green (Creme de Menthe, Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus, or Green Apple) and White.
My card features Gina K's Botanicals set. The images were stamped on the white cardstock, layered on Fresh Asparagus cardstock, and distressed on the edges. The single flower silhouette image was stamped with Old Olive, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The sentiment from the same set was stamped at the top, a Martha Stewart Punch was used for the scalloped edge, and the button, ribbon, and pearl flourish were added to finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Gina K's Botanicals
Paper: Kraft, White, Fresh Asparagus, Bo Bunny Jazmyne dp
Ink: Chamomile
Accessories: Button, Twine, Zva Pearl Flourish, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for joining us today!! Hopefully you came from Jennie's blog......wasn't her card gorgeous!!! Now hop on over to Joy's blog for more AWESOME inspiration!!!
