CSS -ALUMNI MARCH BLOG HOP

Welcome to GKD STAMP TV's CSS ALUMNI COLOR CHALLENGE for MARCH. Today's challenge is provided by Melissa.
You should have arrived here from the very talented Cheri .



Now about my card: I decided to make a shaker card as a few weeks ago Alex (a stamp tv member) had a shaker card challenge and I missed it and I still wanted to make one. The stamps are from Gina K. Designs, Gina's "QUITE A CATCH" and "BEACH BUM" by Rupa. This adorable image is one my favorites and I have seen so many cute cards using it. I colored the images with Copic's. The card stock and brads are also from GKD. The DP is Bo-Bunny. The sand is a mix of Microbeads. Gina has a Tutorial on making a shaker card here.


You will want to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning March 20), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
The next stop ON THE HOP is the ever so talented Joy. If you came here without stopping, you can start from Stamp TV here.

Hope you enjoy the hop and find some inspiration. Good luck and thanks for stopping by.
