Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #3.......What's The Dirt???



Day 3 brings us What's The Dirt? designed by Gina...........a fun, cute and perfect Spring/Summer set!!!


For this one I wanted that beautiful sentiment to be the focal point!!  So I just used a floral embossing folder and then popped the sentiment and some accents in Pure Luxury Red Hot! 


I also stayed CAS with this design....some of you may have seen this one at the release party.  I AM getting a bit more fond of CAS!  LOL  And yes, there IS pink and bling on this card!!  I'm still MEEEEEE after all!!!!  ;)  I just love the little trio of clay pots!!  I used Pure Luxury Green Apple on this card...one of my VERY favorite Pure Luxury colors!!!  I used the Blossom Nestabilities to border the image.  I LOVE my Nesties!!!

Now you definitely want to visit all the DT girls....and leave a comment on each blog as Gina will be picking TWO winners who will each win one of these adorable stamp sets!!!!  Happy Hopping and Happy Spring!!!
~ Have A Creative Day! ~
