Gina K CSS Blog Hop!


It's time for another Center Stage Spotlight blog hop. You should have arrived here from Cheri's...if not, then start at at the Stamp TV Forum...you don't wanna miss a thing!

This time around we are all making cards inspired by this photo from Southern Living.  My eyes were drawn to the beautiful color combo, the lamp, the swirls on the drawers, and the lettering of the sign.  I knew right away that I wanted to use Nina's set, Lovely Shelf, to make a simple no-frills Valentine for my guys...the "wall hanging" sentiment is from Asela's Dream Birds.  I was hoping the strip of patterned paper would look like a wallpaper border but I'm not so sure that idea translated very well!

Here are the products I used to complete my card:
Pure Luxury card stock
Memento ink
Copic markers
Basic Grey Curio designer paper
Jute

Thanks for visiting!  From here, you will visit Joy!
