StampTV CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello it is time for another StampTV CSS blog hop. You should have arrived here from the fabulously creative Cheri, if not be sure to start the hop over on StampTV.  This time Karen found this fabulous Canvas from Art.com for our inspiration.
Here is my take on the inspiration.



 I picked the colors to use as my inspiration.  Then I textured each piece with a different embossing folder.  The hot air balloon is from Eclectic Summer, the sentiment is from Mountain Wilderness both from Gina K Designs.

Your final stop on the hop is Betty.  Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because 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!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
StampTV Friday Free For All: Something that moves
CPS: day 10 sketch


Thank you for stopping by.
