Stamp TV Alumni February Blog Hop

Tonight some of StampTV's Alumni Design Team members are having an Inspirational Blog Hop.  If you came to my from from Karen Knegten's blog you are right on the mark!!  I loved her card!

Today Stamp TV is using this picture from Art.com for our inspiration:
I used the colors and the rectangles from the windows to create this card:



I used the stamp set called Inspirational Blocks.  I used Copic markers to color the butterfly which I had embossed black on GKD white cardstock and then used Sweet Corn, Little Boy Blue and Wine With Everything.

Now bop on over to Geri Utterback's blog and get some inspiration from her truly wonderful card. Remember  as you leave comments on each blog, your name is eligible for a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs stamps! On Tuesday morning (February 14), 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!  Please remember to stop by  Stamp TV to leave a final comment.

Thank you for looking at my card!  Have a HAPPY stamping day!
